Books Make a Home explores the important role they play as Decoration, as well as functional items.

Author and bibliophile Damian Thompson tours the rooms of the home in turn - Living Rooms, Home Libraries & Studies, Kitchens, Bedrooms & Bathrooms, Corridors & Staircases and Children's Rooms - discovering a host of techniques for stacking, shelving and closeting volumes, and illustrating how each space can be brought to life by books.

Alongside inspirational photography is a wealth of practical design solutions for each space and every size of collection.

You will learn how to make the best use of existing storage and create new space for an ever-growing collection; how to combine books with other personal effects to create eye-catching displays; and helpful feature spreads will illustrate how to organize and care for your books.

Beautifully presented and elegantly written, scattered with quotes from famous readers throughout, Books Make a Home is an insightful guide to enjoying books with the eye as well as with the mind.
