Book Marc?

According to Forbes article last week, Marc Jacobs is a closet bookworm. Rumor has it he is now throwing his retail-savvy behind a new venture: a bookstore located in the West Village, across from Magnolia Bakery. Here's the picture Forbes featured of the potential-future storefront:

The official word from the Marc Jacobs company confirms and denies nothing useful; ""We are indeed opening a new store, but do not have details--even a name--to share at this time," a representative said. Still, it sounds like an interesting venture, and it will be neat to see how fashion-guru Jacobs merges his style sense with book sales.

Sadly, I won't be a resident of New York by the time it opens - but I'll definitely add it to my to-visit list when I return!
