This banner hangs over the doorway at *Shakespeare & Co. as a tribute to founder George Whitman who died on Decemeber 14, 2011 at the age of 98. He established the bookstore in 1951 and lived in a small apartment over the shop till his death. George was quite a character. I love the photograph they chose here.
* The shop's website has a lovely tribute that you might want to see.
