Bookish Design

It would be cool but only if the books are one’s own. Meaning, authored by you. Otherwise, it’s too kitchy. And then again, what if Hindus come over?

  1. Looks kind of cool, but my books are far too varied in height – I guess I’d need to expand the collection to populate the shelves ๐Ÿ˜‰ And for those wondering how they did, the image is actually fake. If you look at the top row and the 7th row (the rows with lots of light blue books) you’ll notice they are mirror images of each other.


    1. @anon:
      That was a very good catch. Now that you mention it, so are rows 2 and 9, 3 and 11, 5 and 10, etc.

      I wonder why somebody went to the trouble of doing this.


    2. How do we know it’s not an author who displayed their author copies? That’s what I assumed. It’s an obvious projection on my part, of course.


      1. “How do we know itโ€™s not an author who displayed their author copies?”

        The various books, encyclopedias, paperbacks, and other assorted documents are in too many styles for one living author to be published in all those formats.

        Besides, a highly successful author wouldn’t feel the need to impress FB readers with an obvious Photoshop trick.


  2. I have such a shortage of bookshelf space that this idea is wonderful, from a purely utilitarian point of view!


    1. As a practical matter, the absence of an anterior vertical support panel for each step means that a heavy weight on the center of a step (such as movers carrying heavy furniture up or down the stairs) would put the structure under undue stress.
