Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bookcases, bookshelves, entire rooms: more than simple storagespaces for books, these are unique decorative elements that revealthe personality and lifestyle of their owners. Home libraries arealways personal and often evolving, whether they are speciallycreated in a separate room or found in nooks and crannies allover the house, whether modern or traditional, whether clearlyorganized or a surreal mess.In this book, Dominique Dupuich and Roland Beaufre lead aguided tour of the libraries of some passionate readers, organizedby the type of book lover: decorator (clean lines, structured); fashiondesigner (chic, glamorous); writer (cluttered, charming). . . .Thebook concludes with an invaluable catalogue of shelves, lighting, and accessories that will suit any kind of home library.Featuring: The Artist's Library -The Decorator's Library -The Designer's Library -The Fashion Designer's Library -The Writer's Library -The Collector's Library -The Journalist's Library -and The Boss's Library.

Synopsis:

"A lavish examination of the creative ways people . . .make books a part of their living spaces."--Fine Books & Collections

Synopsis:

A home filled with books can be a place of inspiration in more ways than one. Bookcases, bookshelves, entire rooms: far from being simple storage spaces, home libraries reveal the personalities and lifestyles of their owners. They are always very personal and unpredictable, whether they have been specially created in a separate room or fitted into nooks and crannies all over the house.

Artists, interior decorators, graphic designers, fashion designers, writers, collectors, journalists, and business people: all have different ways of engaging with books as a design challenge. Here we see how they have built the libraries of their dreams, and we explore the many ways of striking a balance between style and practicality, modern trends and classic styling, strict organization and carefree clutter.

The illustrations show how the right combination of shelving, lighting, and accessories can be brought together with a dash of imagination to create a truly unique interior.
