bookshelf spectrum, revisited, originally uploaded by chotda.

i wonder how long this took to arrange.

i wonder if the owner of this amazing library buys books purely for their color properties.

i wonder if i have enough books to do this.

When I first looked, I was thinking that these were fabrics, not books! Either way, they'd be wonderful!

i wonder if that pug is for real - and how many times they have to vacuum that couch to get all the hair off -

hi! that's my library. it took about a year to decide to do it, a couple of weekends of to arrange it, a lifetime of rearranging....

i buy books because i want to read them. sometimes i buy particular editions of books because i like the cover *better*, but not specifically for the cover.

the pug is real. the sofa is scotchguarded.

thanks for posting my photo!

hiya! yes, last time i checked anyway:) it's a tip, i'm converting an adjacent room into a guest bedroom, so the rest of the books are on the floor.

you can see a brief evolution here....

I could definitely get "into" that room. What a beauty. I am a color person. Gotta have it.
