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.
In Queen Anne’s reign in England (1702–14), bookcases became extremely simple, relying for effect on fine proportions and veneers. They normally had a straight front, the doors of the lower portion revealing drawers when open. Within a few years architectural characteristics such as pediments, cornices, and pilasters became prominent.
Rockers from the Silversun Pickups and the Flaming Lips were in attendance during the opening festivities at the 1,800-square-foot store, which was designed by Los Angeles architect Thomas Robertson of Ripple Design. Custom wood-and-steel shelving is one of Ripple`s specialties, and Stories is stacked with it.
