The Library








This post is for all my all librarian friends (you know who you are) and arose out of two seemingly disparate events which occurred on the same day earlier this week - seeing the film 'Atonement' and researching a trip to Thailand. The film's library scene, top image, prompted me to muse on how much I love libraries. Lo and behold, later that day, I found a resort on the internet at Koh Samui, Thailand, called The Library, which has sculptures of reading figures dotted around the grounds, and a restaurant called The Page (second two images). I do think a ladder should be an essential ingredient in a library, so the next two images, from Domicilium Decoratus and Elle Decoration January 2008 edition, illustrate this perfectly. Below this is possibly my favourite library image from my most favourite house in the world - Janet de Botton's house in Provence, from Vogue Living: Houses, Gardens People. The bottom image, also from January Elle Decoration, combines two of my favourite things - books and plates on shelves.

Surely there was a more "interesting" image from the library in Atonement that involves a ladder ;-)

Library ladders on my mind too!

What a lovely post! I dream of having a nice library in my home someday.

My sister in law is building a house, and she is going to have a wall of bookcases in both the living room and the family room - same wall, on either side, with a door in the middle. They are a book loving family!

i haven't watched atonement yet but i am reading the book and it's beautifully written. i've just finished the library scene and am wondering how different the film and the book are? the scene in the book is pretty raunchy! and you're only concentrating on the books?!?!
hee!
