An enormous space, thousands of people, thousands of books, a limited visiting time. How do you find your way among the volumes selected from the international scene by the Libreria Giannino Stoppani bookstore, Bologna?

How. We imagined a route through 26 themes, marked by as many letters. The marker icons on the maps, reproduced with huge dimensions above visitors' heads, enabling them to instantly find their bearings and guiding them among the thousands of titles for children and teenagers. 

What. Interior design, archi-graphics.
