The design of The San Francisco International Book Club’s website features many details that amount to a unique and atypical (online) book browsing experience. The site’s horizontal orientation and photography style – where objects are shown in relative scale – alludes to a bookshelf, while the endlessly looping scroll takes advantage of the unlimited “shelf space” available online. In addition, product detail pages employ intuitive slideshows that evoke the feeling of flipping through a book. A custom mouse cursor, filtering system, and ‘easter eggs’ are not only delightful, but support a user’s browsing experience on the site and strengthen the brand’s personality.

The SF Int’l Book Club
An internal project at Landscape, The San Francisco International Book Club writes about and distributes books related to art, design, architecture, crafts, photography and fashion, as well as everyday objects. We feature lesser-known works, as well as self-published works, that we believe a wider-audience would enjoy seeing.
