An Apartment of Books

Gizmodo isn't all Apple all the time, as some readers accuse. This week an article covered the Ark, part of the Victoria and Albert Museum's Small Spaces exhibit. It is an "apartment" with walls that house 6,000 books.

As the writer pointed out, this installation piece recalls the stair bookcase which is also in London, but actually part of a guy's house.

In London, they really know how to build cool bookshelves.

It makes me especially envious, considering my next one is probably going to be another cheap one from Target. (Not that the cheap one from Target doesn't do its job perfectly.)
