You can say you love books until you’re blue in the face, but unless you have bookcases, all your book-based friends are going to end up on the floor. That, at least, seems to be the premise behind Bookshelf, a blog completely focused on -- you guessed it -- shelves for books.

Unsuprisingly, few of these look anything like what you might think of us normal bookcases. The swirl, they turn, they enhance.

Edited with passion and pride by author and journalist Alex Johnson who is also the creator of Shedworking, a similar but quite different blog.

The Daily Telegraph describes Bookshelf best. “In this day of e-readers and downloads,” they wrote, “it is refreshing to see a celebration of the real thing -- books. Bookshelf does so in a relevant rather than nostalgic way, taking a look at clever, beautiful and useful examples of modern shelving design.”
