14 Original bookcase projects with step-by-step instructions and inspirational features to help you find the one that suits you.

Bookshelves showcase our favourite books and our most treasured objects. Not just useful and practical, they reflect our style and identity, becoming design features in their own right while at the same time fitting harmoniously into our living spaces. They are also relatively easy to make! You don’t need to be an experienced handyman to realize these original designs: all 14 creations include step-by-step photographs, plans and technical tips to guide you through each stage.

Aurélie Drouet also peruses some of the more ambitious library and bookcase projects by leading designers and architects, to inspire all book-lovers.
