Friday Night Flicks: Welcome to The Last Bookstore

Tonight’s flick is Chad Howitt’s short documentary on Josh Spencer, founder and owner of The Last Bookstore in Downtown Los Angeles. With a running time of 11:36, it is a  little longer than I usually choose, but I think it is worth the time.



Perhaps you can spend some time in your local book store this weekend.

    Oh, I would love to visit that store! The place alone looks amazing, and all the installation kind of things look fascinating. And despite the huge space he seemed to have managed to create a rather comfy atmosphere. Adding a cute little girl walking a puppy to the video seems a bit sneaky, though, what could compete with that 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

      I liked the fact that some of the many discarded and probably unsellable books that go through a used bookstore had been turned into installations, and that he has books in a vault since the space was formerly a bank!
