This is like porn for book lovers, and high class porn at that. Its subtitle - how booklovers live with and care for their libraries' sums it up. The book consists of hundreds of photos of home libraries, large and even larger, alongside interviews with their owners and advice for people wishing to indulge their wildest fantasies and start their own. There are sections on serious collectors e.g. The Duke of Devonshire and Paul Getty, literary lairs from people such as Frances Fitzgerald and 'Designer stacks' offering some more contemporary inspiration. The perfect coffee table book or gift for a bibliophile.
