Once Upon a Design
Tucked away in a cosy corner of Ginza Tsutaya Books, amongst twisting shelves and book-lined passageways, you will find a gently lit section devoted to vintage books. Magnificent tomes and petite manuscripts of creamy aged parchment and delicate washi line the shelves, nestled among a curated collection of curios, waiting to be discovered by the next passerby. A bibliophile’s dream, here you can hold history in your hands as you admire the craftsmanship of yesteryear.
Notable Design Details:
- Explore the vintage book corner in Ginza Tsutaya Books shop in this sequel to Bookkeeper’s Brass.
- A studious Canadian polar bear browses the shelves alongside her friend the majestic Elk. Spot the adorable Red Panda as he naps amongst the vintage publications, and keep your eye on our studio mascot, Pumpkin the cat, as he lurks through archives.
- Inspired by the colour of aged parchment.
