I was not aware of the dimensions of the book before reading it. I assumed it would be a bigger coffee table type book, but is is surprisingly compact.
Each author's personal library is photographed- though not necessarily in its entirety- folowed by closeups of selected shelves so you get an idea of the space
(you may develop bookcase envy), quantity, and organizational scheme . The author selects 10 books to feature, which are photographed separately. The photographs are accompanied by fairly brief but compelling interviews.
It is a small disappointment that the complete collections weren't photographed . ( What was omitted is addressed in a few of the interviews). I'd like have seen an estimate of the number of volumes in each collection.
This is an interesting and timely book given that physical book collections are probably beginning a decline, even among book lovers. Add this one to your physical collection today.
If you are a booklover spend a couple of hours with this delightful book. If you know a booklover this would make an outstanding gift.
