The Tattered Cover Bookstore’s Colfax Ave. location opened as the Bonfils Memorial Theater in 1953 and its productions featured such luminaries as Kevin Kline, David Ogden Stiers, Joan Van Ark, Julia Child and Paul Winfield. For a bit more history, have a look here.
These theater chairs and several others, testament to the building’s history, sit in a little reading pit. Relax – the show is about to start.

The book on the table in the foreground pulls the shot together nicely.
It works a lot better than the empty Starbucks cup I moved out of the way. 🙂
i really like how you captured the texture and vivid color of the velvet seats. and the composition is lovely – very balanced, with the book in the foreground pulling the balance slightly askew. i like it. 🙂
Thanks. Those seats are awesome. That whole building is just full of stuff I like – textures, color, lines and curves…..
