Beach communities ensure that your seaside stay is as comfy as can be with kiosks selling and renting everything from ice cream to lounge chairs. And what’s an escape to the ocean without sunscreen or a good book. For those forgetting their reading material at home, French architect Matali Crasset has come up with the novel idea of a pop-up library – offering beach-goers a collection of more than 350 titles to choose from. The selection of books available includes novels which are favorites of the designer, that she chose to help her clarify the intent of the project. They include: “The Poetics of Space” by Gaston Bachelard and ‘Eat Me’ by Agnes Desarthes.
