Seems fashion and lifestyle empirist Marc Jacobs is opening up a sixth store on Bleecker St. in Manhattan and this one’s going to be a bookstore. So books are apparently the new hot accessory (along with colorful e-readers presumably.) We’re in, baby! We’re in! (No, seriously, this is a good thing.) The bookstore is going to be called Books Marc, natch. But no website or further information has been released.
The former tenant of the space was the long-standing Biography Bookstore, which closed last year, renamed itself bookbook and moved to another locale on Bleecker St. They don’t have a website either, it looks like.
If this keeps up, then I may not be able to make the argument that no one cares what George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker are reading in fiction for much longer. Which would actually be a highly enjoyable development.
