Stylish Storage for Books and Beyond

Stylish Storage for Books and Beyond

Posted by Mahogany Millworks by Design on 11th Feb 2020

Bookcases began as built-in cupboards for medieval, handwritten books but eventually became ornate and freestanding. The poem “Shake, Mulleary and Go-ethe” captures the joy of owning beautiful book storage:

I have a bookcase which is what
Many much better men have not
There are no books inside, for books
I am afraid might spoil its looks, etc.

—H. C. Bunner, American novelist and poet
