Lego Bookstore and Library
There was a great round-up the other day on Book Riot of all different bookstores and libraries made out of legos. My favorites were the evocatively accurate (and accurately crowded) model of Powell's, made by its staff (above, below, and at bottom); and Joe Hardenbrook's quite humorously realistic library (sleeping drunks! crowded computer terminals! the one thing I take issue with here is the bespectacled gentleman drinking a mug of coffee behind the circ desk, something I'm pretty sure no self-respecting librarian would actually do, which is surprising considering Mr. Hardenbrooke is himself a librarian--but that's a teensy quibble in an otherwise great sea of admiration). What lovely three-dimensional odes to all things bookish these are.
