Personally we hope the physical book store never dies. Among the many arguments for their coolness and culturally importance, something not said often enough about book stores is – some of them are pretty darn beautiful! Good example? We found the images below of Cook & Book in Brussels, Belgium. These stores look beautiful in general (they even have a gallery on their website here because why wouldn’t they?) – but what really caught our eye were the beautifully poetic images of the sections of the store where books are seemingly “floating” in the air.

If a “book heaven” existed a case could definitely be made that this is what it would look like. 😉

Check out five photos of the store below!
