Book summary

When entering a house, you can quickly ascertain a person's attitude towards books - in a true booklover's home, there are no rooms that do not contain books. While some people succumb to towering piles in every corner, storing books can be achieved with more graceful and ingenious design solutions. Living with books means learning how to incorporate them into your home without letting them take over. This is a beautiful book of full-color photographs, with chapters devoted to books in different rooms, from traditional libraries and dens to kitchens, bathroom s, and hallways. It addresses all aspects: storage, display, the use of books as structural elements and furniture, and advice on custom-building bookshelves (including step-by-step instructions for five different projects).
