Vilnius - Bookshop window

 

The window honours a Lithuanian writer, Julius Janonis (1896-1917), revolutionary Marxist, active in the workers movement. Published many works under his own name and pseudonyms in his short life.

A beautiful window - and a lovely way to memorialize him!

This bookshop is way too orderly, to inspire my entry smile I like secondhand bookshops, that promise hidden treasure.
Tom Wilson: Ah, a bookshop is a bookshop and always attract - first-hand or second smile
Apparently he contracted TB and committed suicide.
Tom Wilson: Yes, not a happy life!
Some people love cobalt blue glass so would appreciate this. My sister is one.
Tom Wilson: It does have a nice cool look to it.
A very fine window isn't it.
Tom Wilson: Yes, and in a bookshop, too!

Secular stained windows are quite a rare thing Tom, but it is a splendid idea
Tom Wilson: Yes, especially memorial windows like this + I have stained glass in my front door, but it is nothing like this!

This is a wonderful picture. Love the blue of the stained glass. The books are very well laid out.. Like Louis I adore second hand books... always hidden treasures there...
