bookshelf inspiration

Looking for some bookshelf inspiration? Look no further than shibuya publishing boksellers. The bookstore/publisher/study opened in early 2008 in Tokyo. Their myriad display of bookshelves and books are stunning. And what I also thought was neat was the way the books are organized – by period. But not by when they were published, but by subject matter. So a recently published book on Keith Haring would most likely be on the same shelf as Salman Rushdie’s The Moor’s Last Sigh (1995).

The interior design is the work of Hiroshi Nakamura (NAP).
