Through the combination of independent book and book curation we can now find the potential of “books as art.” The bookshop STILLBOOKS at SOUNDS in Hannam?culture space, with a unique built-in patio structure ? is one of the best places to highlight this possibility.
On the first floor, magazines dealing with Instagram and film cameras are displayed together, arousing visitors to feel the sensibility of a bygone time in this present era of Instagram. Similar examples repeatedly appear upstairs.
At the Still Favorites shelf, the curators’ picked books are gathered. A turning of the pages reveals the bookmark-type recommendations within the books. The sentences extracted from the very book allows the readers think of their own impression, not a forced, contrived or unintended one. This bookstore invites all to come see for themselves.
