Ah, New York City’s beloved bookstore, the Strand.
When it isn’t being featured in New York Magazine (great read), the East Village store is focusing its energy on making dog lovers happy this holiday season.
And these aren’t just any old dogs. When choosing the 39 pooches featured on the bag, the shop’s in-house designer and illustrator Topher MacDonald was inspired by NPR’s Dogs of NYC interactive map, according to BarkPost. He took months designing the breeds (and even has a mutt to pay homage to Gizmo).
