Editorial Reviews

Ray Olson
Less a book about libraries, as its Dewey classification asserts, than an interior-design album, this lavish tome yet stresses the importance of books in the lives of even the rich and famous, even when they're not writers. Oh, some whose book troves appear do write for a living: for instance, poet Richard Howard, whose small New York apartment walls are near-totally covered with books. Others whose entire names are famous include designer Bill Blass and Rolling Stone Keith Richards, but of the rest, a few just have impressive surnames (Rothschild, Getty, Biddle), one has a title (the duke of Devonshire), and the remainder have monikers as discreet as their fortunes are large. A terrific browsing book, thanks to Christopher Simon Sykes' tasteful photos, helpfully concluded by a resource directory of tony rare-book dealers, book fairs, bookbinders, sources of library furnishings, etc.

    Good

    Another good book related book about books and their shelves and all that. Love the pictures of course. Makes you want to make your own shelf or just organize it in a different way.

    An Inspiring book of home library design from sublime to quirky

    This is one of my favorite books, and a real inspiration for anyone dreaming of building their own private library space. The author lets the booklovers talk about their private library space, its design, and book collections. The photographs give the reader a clear picture of what each library looks like, with none of the 'Hollywood' effects of the slick magazine approach, giving each space that lived-in look, tattered furniture and all. You can almost smell the years of smoke, must, and dust that can only accumulate with a lifetime of book collecting.
