Today, we came across this awesome art that designer Patrik Svensson did for Jashanmal, a chain of bookstores in the United Arab Emirates.

The signs were just installed in the store's branch in the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai, and the chain plans to insert them in their other shops around Dubai as well.

The art is surprising and beautifully detailed (the man climbing the ladder of reference books for the "reference section," the hero inside the dragon's eye in the "fantasy & sci-fi," the carrot in the whisk for "cooking").

Now if only they'd start doing stuff like this in the United States. Sigh.
