Take a guess why I lingered so long on Alex Johnson's blog, Bookshelf. Perhaps it's because my own shelves are pretty much all from the stylish company known as "Ikea," the model called "Billy." Exotic, it is not. Functional, yes. Passably nice looking, okay. But outrageous, elegant or gorgeous? 'fraid not.
Thank goodness there's someone out there recording beautiful bookshelves for virtual eternity. Someone with no end of material who intends to keep fighting the good fight, sharing unusual and artistic design with the world.
