"The book gives readers a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the eye-catching and intricate window and shop displays (often made with everyday objects like clothespins, cardboard, tea bags, and paintbrushes) that have graced the windows and stores for years. (Holiday Book Pick)" —ELLE DECOR

"When it comes to retail merchandising, Anthropologie changed the game at a time when most store interiors were primarily just racks and shelving. Anthropologie created (and still creates…) “experiences” and transported you into wonderful whimsical worlds with their amazing displays. This book celebrates the rich history of visuals, and honestly, makes me a bit nostalgic for that time before online shopping became so dominant. Anyway, if you’ve ever shopped or loved Anthro, this book will definitely delight." —HAPPYMUNDANE
