Regardless of whether you have a designer’s eye, there’s something—dare I say—sexy about a genius bookshelf. It’s why we drool over book towers, decorating with books and celebrity bookshelves, and why we get so excited to pick our favorite covers every year. Visually, books are yummy.
That’s why Bookshelf by Alex Johnson is great. With 305 color illustrations, it celebrates the bookshelf as more than just storage—it’s “modern art, engineering experiments, and . . . status symbols.”
Some of the shelves are way out of the box, some are totally DIY-able, and all should be considered nothing short of art. What now, e-books?
