“The best of mural decorations is books; they are more varied in color and appearance than any wallpaper, they are more attractive in design, and they have the prime advantage of being separate personalities, so that if you sit alone in the room in the firelight, you are surrounded with intimate friends.” - William Lyon Phelps
If books are like friends, then Bookshelf Porn is Facebook for tomes. From residential libraries to public ones to simple stacks of books, hundreds of colourful images, each one book-related, are showcased on this photo-blog. We’ve drooled over the perfectly designed bookcases, loved the randomly stacked piles of books and imagined we were right there, among the old hardcovers in a tiny shop somewhere in Europe perhaps.
As you can probably tell, we urge you to proceed with caution: once you start, you can’t stop. —MG
