I adore this shot submitted to Flickr by ooh_food and chosen for this week’s Bookshelf of the Week, and I adore it for a couple of reasons. The first reason is the most obvious – wall to wall, floor to ceiling – a sprawling and glorious bookish vista. The second is how domineering the books appear, next to the teensy TV that occupies one of the shelves. In an age where more and more people want drive-in movie sized screens in their home, it’s refreshing to find evidence that in this home at least, books still rule supreme.
If I had the money and I had the space then this is how I’d want every wall in every room of my own home, and I’m sure fellow bibliophiles would to. Thanks for a great shot ooh_food.
