I saw this picture on a decorating blog.
They stated they loved books but the many colored covers and spines offended their aesthetic sensibilities. Voila! This solution.
I couldn’t help but wonder how they ever found a book again.
A few hundred years ago you could order books by the yard. All pretty leather bound books with gilt inscribed titles. Just tell the bookstore how many shelves you needed to fill and they delivered.
At least you could READ the titles.
