Crazy Bookish Cafe

I'm not sure this would be a good place for my book club to meet. It's a bit disorienting.

The reading theme is perfect for this location of Manhattan coffeeshop D'Espresso. A prevalence of books also nods to its unique location, near the New York Public Library.

"The "books" are actually tiles printed with sepia-toned photos of bookshelves at a local travel bookstore that ring the room, including the floor, walls and ceiling. In addition to painting unusual surfaces with intriguing patterns -- whoa, you're standing on books! -- it gives an Alice in Wonderland-esque sense that the room has been suddenly upended."
