Living with Books

Soma Books, April 1999. First Edition. Oversized Clothbound. Used - Very Good / Very Good. Item #274576
ISBN: 1579590241

Some people never have more than a shelf or two of books. Others are more committed: they hoard books, rearrange them, and seldom get rid of any. Living with Books, aimed at the latter group, addresses the challenges and joys of a home masquerading as a library, from storage to display to the use of books as structural elements and furniture.

Each chapter covers a different room and the special way that books can exist in or enhance that space. Obvious areas such as dens and offices are covered, along with more daring places such as hallways, kitchens, and bathrooms. Special features include a closer look at the care and display of decorative books, decorative papers, and bookplates, and a final chapter on custom-building bookshelves to suit every home.

Full of beautiful and colorful photos, this book addresses all aspects: storage, display, the use of books as structural elements and furniture. First edition with full number line. Burgundy cloth boards with the title blindstamped along the spine. Very light shelfwear on the jacket.
