I love these bookshelves pictures. Most of them are from www.bookshelfporn.com and a few are from www.community.livejournal.com
There are many more great pictures from those websites, but these are my favourites. Sorry I couldn't provide most of the pictures' descriptions :( x
Interior of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County “Old Main” Building, photographer unknown, 1874.
In 1874 the Public Library of Cincinnati took possession of a small building intended to be an opera house. According to John Fleishman, “the parcel at 629 Vine Street was transformed in two stages into a library building that startled America with its cutting edge design. Its vast Main Hall featured five tiers of cast-iron book alcoves that could house over 200,000 volumes.”
Door leading to a room filled with books!!
Desk made out of books from the architecture library at Delft University of Technology.
Book building of the day. As part of a local children's bookfair, Slovakian artist Matej Kren was invited by the Museum of Modern Art in Bologna to install a massive fortress composed of thousands upon thousands of books.
Which one is your favourite?
(Now I feel like buying more books!!) :) x
