This is a delight for anyone interested in shop architecture and design, from the street where it is located to the lighting and display of merchandise. There's a chapter on the shop of the future; while he didn't predict online shopping, he did have some sage observations for how cities should design their commercial districts. Highly recommended; the photographs in the plate section are delightful.
