In Wellington the long-established bookshop Parsons recently closed after 66 years in business, the family running it want to spend time with their family, so they had a massive sale in their wonderful shop and closed with a ‘bang’!  Modernist architect Ernst Plischke designed the shop, including this wonderful staircase.

    That’s a great staircase, but what a shame that such a historic bookstore is closing.

    Oh we hate to hear that book shops are closing…. 🙁
    Although we’re glad it was because they wanted to spend time with family and not because the shop was failing!
