On My Bookshelf

February 2, 2012

Here's a little section of my bookshelf that I call "oversized books" just cause most of them are too big to be placed vertically and therefore must be stacked. My Petite Night Flower Blythe doll Peony hangs out here too. I collect photography volumes that I like to study and also have an admitted propensity for fashion and design books as well. I was fortunate enough to be gifted six of the books here. I love receiving pretty books as gifts.

So do we own any of the same ones?  What kind of books are on your bookshelf?

  2. Oh yes, we own some of the same books and some of yours are on my wish list.
    Girl, I think you need a coffee table for those ;-)

  3. Most of the books on my bookshelf are picture-heavy design books lol. I have to admit I'm not the biggest reader - but you have some very interesting books in your collection!

  5. You have such a lovely collection! I really need to get more physical books (we just have Kindle books and paperbacks). Tim Walker pictures would be amazing!

  6. Since we moved to NYC and a tiny one bedroom apartment I've (sadly) done away with real books and am sticking to the electronic version... which just does not work for the fabulous books that you have. The Chanel and McQueen books look especially good - I have an official case of book envy!

    ps. thanks for your last comment - it made me laugh out loud!

  7. Peony is so cute! :) I own that Domino book too. I would say we have more magazines than books. You know, highbrow stuff like US Weekly. :P

  9. I have the Domino book which is nice but none of the others. I saw the McQueen book last week and it has some stunning work in it. I have a ton of books so I don't buy too many new ones these days.

    I'm sorry about your pigeon sofa. Gray does go with everything though. :)

  31. I'm really intrigued by "Appearances" by Martin Harrison! That's a really nice collection you've got there! On my bookshelf I've got "Pretty- The Nylon Book of Beauty" and lots of Paulo Coelho, he's my favourite writer. And I'm currently reading Freud's Dream Psychology.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog, yours is great and I'm now following :) Keep in touch!

  33. Reading is my first passion, before fashion and classic movies. My bookcase includes all kinds of books, from fiction, to biographies, fashion, design and film books. I have none of the titles on your bookshelf though, so thank you for sharing. I'll make sure to add a few to my wish list. :)
