What's the best way to beautify books? In Maastricht, the Boekhandel Selexyz Dominicanen was once a gorgeous historical Dominican church and is now home to thousands of books.

The old church lives on, thanks to Merkx and Girod Architects, who gave the classic building a chance to be enjoyed for many more years. Take a look through the gallery above to see one of the most scenic places literature has called home.

Implications - Businesses that offer their clients a unique or unusual experience that accompanies their products will certainly attract a larger audience. Consumers will distinguish a company that behaves this way as more memorable than its competitors. Stats for Converted Church Bookstores Trending: Older & Average
