I need to check this book out. A book about books--I love it! Reminds me of a Seinfeld episode where Kramer writes a coffee-table book about coffee-tables.

Bundles of old books look like gifts on the shelves. It is a nice decorative treatment.
I think this is interesting: A birdcage filled with books. It would be great in a small space where bookshelves are not possible. It offers storage in a visually pleasing and unusual way.

This is the same concept as above but applied to shelves. The books are risers for other objects.

Designer Nate Berkus is a proponent of books as decorative objects. They are great to raise the level of other things on a table, like this lamp and framed picture. I do this a lot myself, and I like having my books close by because I actually read them!
|If you don't mind searching a little longer for your favorite book, this is a great looking treatment with the pages facing out.|
I adore this! Huge antique volumes stacked to function as a table.
I plan to do another post on books in Kid's rooms, so stay tuned!!!
