Since my last time at the bookshop, I realized that I had to organize my books somehow. And I know that most of you, art people, do like to read too (as you are reading this), so I thought of sharing this with you. It's one of the nicest solutions I've ever seen for bookkeeping and I wish I could do it at home.
This bookshelf-staircase makes it easier to keep your books, it gives you quick access to any book you'd like and it saves a lot of space from your bedroom or living room. You could also use plastic doors on every shelf (maybe except for the staircase itself) to keep them cleaner, although they'll be safe anyway. The good thing about it being as staircase is that you can reach the books in higher places and, of course, it keeps its original function: to reach another floor.
The bookshelf staircase was created by Levitate Architects, an English company based in London and Bristol. (via)
