The Bookshelf Project #16

This week's pictures of bookshelves are from Alexander. For his collection, Alex mentions that:
  • The bigger books in the centre from left to right are design/architecture/world history/aviation/miltary/transport/star wars (I am secretly a big fan) and sheet music books (next to the piano!).
  • Third from bottom row: art/more smaller architecture books/more world history (I love history on ancient civilizations and cultures) and under the sheet music section I have school yearbooks and souvenir brochures that I have amassed.
  • The bottom two rows on the left and centre sections are photograph albums (another meticulous hobby of mine - on the spines I have the flags of the countries visited displayed in that album.) The right section has dictionaries and some more miscellaneous reference books.



Such a diverse collection, don't you think? And I love that the bookshelves cover the entire wall! What do you think, dear reader?

Great library!

I would love bookshelves that cover the entire walls, like the one Mick St. John has in Moonlight. :)

Love, love, love the floor to ceiling bookshelves.

In fact, I'm feeling rather jealous of all that book space.

I would love to know if the shelves were handmade or custom made.

I think this is one of the best set of shelves in the series so far. Very organized.

Very impressive - and to complete the cultured vibe, an upright next to it!

Fabulous bookshelves, beautiful room. I long to have a home with a room like this in it as the piano and wood floors suggest enough space for dance and music as well as reading.

Vivienne said...

I want my bookshelves to cover the whole wall!
