Reflections of a working writer and reader

 

 

Not Just Bibles

BLDG BLOG reports (with photographs) on the bookshop constructed inside a converted Dominican church in Maastricht, which has won an architectural interiors prize.

. . . it achieves a weirdly ironic overlap in which two cultural spaces, both on the verge of extinction, at least in Western Europe – and I’m referring here to the Christian church and to the bookshop – come together to form a kind of last gasp for either entity.
