Lets face it, a lot of book lovers can’t get enough of a good book case, an interesting and unique book shelf sometimes being no exception. So here’s a whole bunch for all you book and bookshelf lovers out there. We also have far more on our Facebook page in the album Bookshelves.
At some point bookcases became art pieces for a percentage of people. Don’t get me wrong, some of the unique bookcases out there are pretty cool and there’s some I love the design of, but you can’t tell me that those book cases are designed to hold books. As cool as some of those shelves are I wonder about the people who actually buy them and if they actually read or like the idea of looking like they do?
One of the biggest issues that a serious bookworm and collector faces is space and there’s a lot of unique bookcases that don’t cater to space, but are all for looks, so I thought I’d share some pictures of bookcases out there that are just weird and not practical. All images link up to their sources as well.
There’s something about a fully stocked bookcase. I love a full bookcase especially if it’s solid and has been loved.
I have been planning on designing and having my own bookcase made, but then I came across one on Ebay that was starting at 20 dollars. It was also local pick up and just down the road from me so I wouldn’t have to pay for postage (bargain).
I bid on it and ended up buying it for $51. I thought I’d share photos of it because I am in love with it and excitable. Plus it’s book related and it came in my mailbox by association (I bought it online, that counts doesn’t it?).
I also got a little excited and took several pictures hence putting everything in gallery view.
Here’s a little explanation;
- My bookcase
- Fred the Skeleton sitting on the bookcase. It’s his new home after he took over my gaming chair for several months.
- And the rest – I have some knick knacks that I’ve matched up to the books. Well some of them anyway because I couldn’t match up the rest. I was going to match up my crystals to my crystal book for instance, but that book is in another bookcase.
I finally got all the books away, but I haven’t cleaned everything else. I think it’s about time I focused on that and stopped getting distracted…
