Artist Miranda July brings her book to life with an actual store.

The book ‘It Chooses You' is written by artist Miranda July and follows her obsession in getting to know the sellers in the iconic classifieds booklet, the PennySaver. As part of the book launch, July is collaborating with design studio Partners & Spade to set up a retail store within its studio in New York to resale memorabilia and meaningful items they find in classifieds. Each item is accompanied by an interview with the original seller to provide insights into the unique objects.
