Far from being simple storage spaces, bookcases, shelves and even entire libraries reveal the personalities and lifestyles of their owners. New in paperback, Living with Books explores the libraries of some of the top names in the worlds of art, design and fashion. Dominique Dupuich and Roland Beaufre take us on a guided tour of the home libraries of some passionate readers including Philippe Starck, Terence Conran, Manolo Blahnik, Paul Smith, Gilbert & George and Sonia Rykiel, discovering how they built up the libraries of their dreams and exploring the many ways of striking a balance between style and practicality, modern trends and classic styling, strict organization and carefree clutter.
This book presents a world of inventive ways to showcase books at their best, as objects of beauty and fascination for all. The lavish illustrations show how the right combination of shelving, lighting and accessories can be brought together with a dash of imagination to create a truly unique interior.
