Creative shelving

Stockholm bookcase

My brother-in-law, the self-proclaimed Swedish Okie and country bumpkin, is a book collector. This is only one of his meticulously organized bookcases.

Though his library is vast, most books fall into his narrow fields of interest: art, design, travel, photography, and ancient civilizations.

Holmes among homes

He has many books on home design, like Designer Apartments, Contemporary Houses, and editions from the Interiors and Conran series. I recently noticed with amusement that he has a copy of Sherlock Holmes shelved among them.
