Book shop daytime by Ink-and-think Book shop daytime by Ink-and-think
Internal lights off this time. It was easier to photograph this way but lacking in interest a bit. If I told you how look it took to make, I'd be lying.

This looks like one of those lovely shops you'd see, just  be slightly curious about and go in only to spend a few minutes. And three hours later you come out. It's got such a lovely, inviting, old fashioned feel to it.  I love the old stonework, the panelling,the moss growing out of the cracks.

All those wonderful mini books in the window and the worn "closed" sign just looks like you've taken an existing store and shrunk it.

I can't be sure, but it looks to me like all the windows above have different window dressings. This so makes me believe there are different tenants living there! What a wonderful model.

It must look so warm with the lights on. Congrats on the DD. It was so well deserved!

the style reminds me of Olivanders Wand shop X3 Unless- was this Harry Potter themed? In that case it might look similar to the book shop there ^_^

No not harry potter themed.  I take that as a huge compliment as they had some awesome sets for those movies . :) Thank you very much.

Looks real good. It just needs some wooden shutters or venetian blinds to the 1st and 2nd floors' windows and, maybe, some rolled-up iron curtain at the top of the shop windows.

Anyway, that kind of bookshop, in real life, would make me so want to enter and stay there for hours, reading old, grand books before finally buying one.
And coming back the next week or so to do the same.

:-)

what kind of material have you used for the bricks? clay? or are they made of tiny pieces of paper dispersed to give an illusion of being bricks? because it looks great. I swear that you can make an exellent photo realistic model of tons of things like architectonic planes. ^^

Thanks :) The bricks are actually cut from lino floor tiles. I just happened to have some around and they are self adhesive so I used them...in retrospect I can't recommend it as they are quite hard to cut to accurately at such a small scale. I will try something else next time.
