Bookshelf of the Week: Writer’s Retreat

If I’m being honest, I know absolutely nothing about this week’s Bookshelf of the Week, other than it comes courtesy of Bournemouth-based web designer, Ed Merritt. But how could I resist such a fine specimen of integrated bookshelving?

Of course, one has to wonder whether having a behemoth of a book storage system such as this is practical or not, but putting that aside there’s no denying that what we have here is one beautiful and magnificent homage to books. I adore it, and I hope you do too. My thanks to Ed Merritt for making the image available.

EDIT: Since posting, Ernesto aka @TredySas, has pointed me to some extra information on the subject for this Bookshelf of the Week. Many thanks Ernesto.

About Rob

Rob, a self-confessed bibliophile, is without any hope of rehabilitation. He gets unnaturally excited over anything book-shaped, and if book sniffing were a crime then he would have been locked up years ago (which wouldn't bother him in the slightest provided his cell was lined with books)

      Me too, and I think it’s more ‘accidental’ i.e. to do with the design of the structure (note that the same structure extends outside of the window)

  2. Beautiful! But where’s the ladder? Not much point if you can’t reach your books!

      I wondered that myself Kristen. I’m thinking it may be off to the side because it wasn’t aesthetically pleasing enough :). Thanks for stopping by.
