We`ve organized our bookshelf by color for some time here at Dwell. And to be fair, it looks great. As visitors pass the design wall, the current issue of the magazine tacked up in its unbound state, they`re met with a rack of chromatic harmony. Hell, we even put a picture of the shelf in the March 08 issue of the magazine.
This week, we read a short article over at NPR about Bookshelf, a blog-turned-book by Alex Johnson about — you guessed it — the bookshelf in all its glory. It’s no secret that we’re suckers for a little book-related design here at Flavorpill, so we took the occasion of the book’s publication as an excuse to round up thirty gorgeous, innovative, and otherwise amazing bookshelves and bookcases for all your book display needs.
Then, in what can only be called striking serendipity, I came across this essay in the back catalog of Design Observer: Rob Giampietro musing on cataloging books by color.
