There has been much discussion in the past about the best (and the most aesthetically pleasing) way to display books. Many of us also struggle with creating systems for storing our design magazines. Last night, I found this image in the December issue of World of Interiors, and the array of brightly colored book bindings caught my eye. I immediately thought of those leather bound copies of Webster's Dictionary (seen in the Kate Spade Fall ads) which are so popular right now.
The "books" in the library above are actually bound issues of Condé Nast magazines, which makes perfect sense as the homeowner is Nicholas Coleridge, managing director of Condé Nast. Issues of World of Interiors are bound in bright yellow buckram, Tatler in orange, Vogue in red, GQ in blue, and House & Garden in green. Don't they look wonderful?
