Books Do Furnish a Room

Leslie Geddes-Brown

As all book lovers know, a collection of books affords not only access to endless pleasure and knowledge, but also, when skilfully deployed around the home, the opportunity to create a myriad of different impressions. In this beautifully illustrated guide, self-confessed bibliophile Leslie Geddes-Brown offers inspirational solutions and practical tips on how to make the most of books in every room and forgotten nook of the house. From a working library that is a paragon of order and logic to the cosy informality of a den with books stacked in piles on the floor; from the dramatic impact of floor-to-ceiling shelves to the inviting ease of baskets of books by a fireside; and from discreet shelves that blend into the background to a designer bookcase that becomes the focal point of a room, all the key aspects are considered. A dazzling array of photographs shows how books can transform any room into an alluring and magical place.
