I Spy: January 2018

by Sally Bjork

From the February, 2018 issue

January's I Spy is "the best Ann Arbor bookstore!" writes Tom Weimert. It's "Literati," says Colleen Roche, "the independent bookstore ... downtown." "Has it been five years already?" Carol Mousigian asks, referring to the clue. Literati "was opened in March 2013 by Mike and Hilary Gustafson," writes David Karl. "An Ann Arbor match made in heaven," he continues ... a "cool bookstore run by cool people." "I remember when it opened," says Sam Firke. "Now it feels like an Ann Arbor icon."

"The 'L' in this month's photo is the first letter of the typewriter keyboard-inspired logo," writes David Frye. The "iconic storefront sign," relays Karl, "was designed by the former senior editor at National Geographic ... and constructed by Grafaktri of Ann Arbor."

We received 17 correct entries in January. Our random drawing winner is Eugene Ko, who will enjoy his $25 gift certificate at Marnee Thai.


To enter this month's contest, use the clue and photo on the Back Page of the February issue and follow the instructions at the bottom of the page to submit your answer.    (end of article)
