Cool Idea of the Day: Dashwood Books Curates Hotel Library

Dashwood Books, the New York City bookstore specializing in photography and art books, has curated a library at the Mercer Hotel in SoHo. Per Cultured, the library is located in the hotel's lobby and features books selected by store owner David Strettel, who founded Dashwood Books in 2005. The books in the Mercer library are meant to "add to their existing collection so there is a broad range of reference books on the visual arts, but still include enough surprises so that even a casual browser is rewarded with inspiration." The Mercer, located three blocks from Dashwood Books, is a 74-room hotel built in 1890.
