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).

From Our Editors

If you love books then you know that finding places to keep them is a challenge of monumental proportions. No matter what you seem to do with them, they tend to clutter and mess up a place. Never fear, Alan Powers has some elegant solutions to keep your books neatly and uniquely organized on eye-catching shelves full of character and fun. Living with Books is full of full-colour photos of shelving ideas and custom projects. Bring attention to your collector's editions, keep the ratty ones out of the way and use the sturdiest ones as unusual structural elements or furniture.
