Monique Rodriguez ‘Bibliophile’
I learnt a new word today – Bibliophile; a person who collects or has a great love of books. Can you be one of these without actually ever reading one from cover-to-cover? I have always loved books! I collect them & usually don’t read them for months or sometimes years, if at all. I feel like I am somehow absorbing all of their positive messages just by having them around me. Perhaps I should stick to picture books. Speaking of picture books, we will be releasing one at the end of this year, just in time for Christmas. More about that later.
For now, here is a gorgeous new series from Monique Rodriguez starring Clara Jones, set in an Austin (Texas) book store.
“Clara only had a few days left in Austin, so we decided to make the most of our time left together & drove down to Houston to shoot around the big city. We found this little bookstore through a quick google search & thought it might be interesting. It had actually been a house that the owners had turned into a store, & it was beautifully covered wall to wall with all kinds of books, from antique to brand new. The owner happily let us take some photos there, but being a bookstore it was rather interesting to shoot in almost complete silence, other than our giggles”.
