Ignore the text in this book, its just decorator patter. The photography however is magnificent as is the selection of libraries on display. I would love to own or visit with most of the shelving displayed and in fact the canoe structure on pp98 is close to something we almost bought (and should have) a year ago. Sigh. The A-frame structure on pp112 is quite intriguing as is the library ladder leading up to a sleeping loft on pp126. I'm not however sold on the idea of hanging pictures in front of books.

OK for a library read or if you are into decorating. I enjoyed looking at it but probably not a keeper.

Have over 4000 books-haven't taken inventory lately- but there's a lot of them in almost every room in the house! Great ideas to store & show off!

Good ideas...but a small condo and lack of wall space makes most of them impractical. Love the photos, though

This book is kinda unique as it showcases books in all its decorating possibilities. There are enough photos to give the right ideas. Books can really be decorative around the house. If you have enough you might as well give them a second purpose, i. e., to decorate your house tatefully and beautifully.

Oddly enough, I thought that this book was going to show me how I could turn old books into more useful, but decorative, items.
Sadly, I was mistaken but the book does have some good photos of how other people are displaying their books.
