At Home with Books
"I like a project that never ends, and library is that."
I am probably the last person on the planet to know about this book, but the second I pulled it off the shelf at a friend's house, I knew I had to order a copy for myself. Even though it was published twelve years ago, At Home with Books: How Booklovers Live with and Care for Their Libraries is my new favorite. With text by Estelle Ellis and Caroline Seebohm, and photographs by Christopher Simon Sykes, this is a fantastic collection of libraries and their caretakers. I could honestly stare at the pages in this book for hours. There are over 200 images and it is fun to scrutinize each of these well-known book lover's collections.
