Is This Starbucks a Bookworm’s Dream?

Spotted by GalleyCat, this library-themed pop-up Starbucks store in Tokyo is making us incredibly jealous. “At the counter, visitors can trade the book for an actual espresso drink, but retain the book cover which tells them about the drink they have chosen, to use as a book cover, as they like,” explains Nendo, the Japanese studio behind the design. “The ‘library’ invites visitors to choose an espresso drink as they would a book, and verse themselves in espresso drinks as though quietly entering into a fictional world. Books and coffee are both important parts of everyday life, so we created a link between favorite books and favorite coffees.” Click through to take a look inside, and let us know what you think!
