For the Love of Books gathers all of Thatcher Wine’s philosophy about books, curating and designing libraries into one volume. This stunning coffee table book, published by Gibbs Smith, features photographs from the 18 year archive of library images, exquisite illustrations by Samantha Hahn, and insights and tips for displaying your love of books and telling your own story on your shelves from Thatcher and Elizabeth Lane.
Explore the significance of the home library, embellished with alluring photography and illustrations, in a keepsake worthy of any bibliophile’s collection. For the Love of Books shares the vision of Juniper Books, and embraces the roles that books fulfill in our lives and their staying power. It recounts the history of books and private libraries, and champions the resilience of books in the digital era. Dive into the nuances that define books for reading, books for decoration, and books for inspiration. Instructive chapters provide useful details for creating and curating one’s own home library, whether it be a single shelf or multiple rooms each with their own collection. You will never look at your bookshelves the same way again.
For the Love of Books is about storytelling beyond the pages of our favorite books. Our books―the ones we choose to keep―tell the story of who we are. They remind us who we once were and who we aspire to be.
