It’s true, we live in a time when things that appear on video screens get more attention than things that appear written on a page. But even so, there is still nothing better at the end of a long day, or the beginning of a long weekend, than to curl up with a good book. Just grab an old favorite, hit the couch and tune out for a few hours with a snack or your favorite drink.
But some of us take it a step further. Our books are more than a hobby or coffee table dressing, they’re a passion and like any other collection curated over years and years the books in our homes deserve more than just storage. They should be displayed and celebrated in home libraries that are just as beautiful as every other room. So if you’re looking to create a shrine to the written word for your own home here are some inspirational masterpieces that will get you going.
