Pretty Books


Although the tiny space of my current bachelor apartment doesn't allow for a lot of space for storage of any kind, let alone enough to house any of my numerous books (most of which are currently hiding in a certain PEI basement - thanks Mom & Dad), the perfect home library space is something that this librarian has been dreaming of for ages - makes sense right? Especially when you see cozy and pretty spaces such as the one above, or any of these or these, it's hard not to daydream a little.

Everyman's Pocket Poetry
Until I'm more settled and have my own space to finally set up a cozy home reading space, I'm content to simply purchase those items which will fill my shelves - the pretty books! I do find that books have become a bit of a design tool only - with etsy shops selling stacks of "vintage books", or designers using colourful books to provide a certain type of look that someone wants on their shelves. Personally, although I do love the aesthetic value of a book, but I also definitely want my own collection to contain items I actually am interested to read.

Penguin Hardcover Classics
 Luckily for people like me, a few different publishers are coming out with some seriously lovely looking books that also have content which a former English major and current Librarian like me will want to read and re-read. Beautiful AND smart? Yes please.

Vintage 21 - Random House
Although I have yet to add any of these lovely little tomes to my ever-growing collection of books, many of these titles would make great additions to my eventual home library, in addition to filling out my future bookshelves quite nicely.
