For this week’s Bookshelf of the Week I’m posting this shot taken by Eccentric Scholar, mainly so I can provoke a debate on how common it is for people to actually store their libraries like this in order of colour, rather than say alphabetically or in genre groupings? The fact that this image is actually linked to a Flickr group called Rainbow of Books, would suggest it is a common-placed practice, but I just can’t envisage any hardcore bibliophile storing their libraries like this. It must be hugely impractical! Am I just being naive here folks? What are your thoughts?
Anyway, regardless of its practicalities this is still a beautiful bookshelf shot (it’s actually better in large) and it’s one that oozes tons of aesthetic appeal. Thanks for capturing it Eccentric Scholar!
