Bookshelves showcase our favourite books and most treasured objects, are useful and practical but, far from reducing them to their simplest function, we love that they reflect our style and individuality, becoming design features in their own right and, yet, harmoniously fitting into our living spaces. They are also relatively easy to make and accessible to everyone. No need to be an experienced handyman to realize these original designs: this book presents 14 creations with step-by step photos, plans and technical tips. And for inspiration, Aurelie Drouet, peruses some of the more ambitious library and bookcase projects by leading designers and architects.
Aurelie Drouet started writing her own in 2009, publishing books on decorating and antique collecting. Jerome Blin is a photographer whose personal work combines the intimate with the documentary in works such as "Passage, Paysage." He has shot for numerous magazines and newspapers in France, including "La Croix," "Le Monde Magazine," and "Viva Magazine." He and Drouet have worked together on "Bibliotheques," "Design Nature," and "100% Pallet.""
