9780500516140: Bookshelf

Celebrating innovation and inspiration in one of the most basic of all home designs: the bookshelf.

Bookcases are so much more than just a place to store one’s books. They've become experiments in engineering and explorations into modern art, covetable in their own right. Financial analysts at Bloomberg have even used the IKEA Billy bookcase as an index of economic growth.

In these pages you will find plenty of inspiration and diversity, from “Juxtaposed,” a shelf capitalizing on limited space to display seven books containing the world’s most influential religions, to Sakura Adachi’s “Trick,” a bookcase that constantly mutates into a table and two chairs. Shelves can even be re-imagined: the way laundry is dried in China informed Dutch designers Studio Ditte as they created their Kwan bookcase.

So while we appreciate the efficient book storage of e-readers, let us marvel at physical bookshelves that are shaped like trees, or hold books upside down, or can even walk. This beautifully crafted book will bring joy to book lovers everywhere.

About the Author:

Alex Johnson is a writer and designer whose previous books include Bookshelf and Shedworking: The alternative workplace revolution. Both of his parents were librarians.

Review:

“[Alex] Johnson’s book will remind our descendants of the whimsy and glory of making theater out of book storage.”
- The Wall Street Journal

“Stacked cinder blocks and boards work just as well–or as optimistic in this e-book world―as the swirling, angled, wacky shelves in Alex Johnson’s new book.”
- The Los Angeles Times

“...a very cool compilation of creatively designed bookshelves...”
- The Chicago Tribune

“Johnson’s delight in the inventiveness of contemporary bookshelf design is infectious, and the care for and love of books imbued in these creations may enthuse even the most devoted e-book reader.”
- Publishers Weekly

“Especially and particularly recommended to anyone whose ideas of interior decoration and design include rooms of bookshelves brimming over with their life-time collections.”
- The Midwest Book Review

Descripción Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A title that will appeal to those interested in book culture as well as furniture and interior design, Bookshelf is the first publication to take bookshelf design as its subject. From the conceptual Read-Unread Bookshelf (which weighs books read against those still to be started) to the multi-function Trick (a unit that transforms from shelf-space into a table and two chairs), Bookshelf presents over 200 inventive and experimental shelving designs in more than 400 colour illustrations that are sure to covet and inspire. Individual specification details are provided for each bookcase, including materials and documentation, and the accompanying texts by Alex Johnson, author and editor of The Blog on the Bookshelf , provide a fun and informative look at the history of the bookcase, as well as reflecting on how a new generation of designers have re-imagined a classic. One might have presumed that, with the advent of the e-book, the days of the bookshelf were numbered.In fact, readers are now taking almost as much interest in the furniture that houses their libraries as the books themselves; if the titles in your collection are a reflection of your personality, then so too is the design of your bookshelf.
