Personal Sanctuary

Libraries are a vital part of our history, present and future. Books were once more than just for pleasure. The ability to read and write meant the difference between struggling to get by day to day and actually living an easier life. Sadly, with the declining economy has meant that many libraries have had to close down. The wonders of books and reading should be for everyone rich, poor, clever, stupid, handicapped, non-handicapped.

For a select and fortunate few; if you are not happy with choice of books in your Library, create your own. Designed to your own specification and taste, you can have the peace and meditation that you have always wanted on your own terms.

Here are some especially lovely examples. The bottom picture, the Duchess of  Alba Library in Madrid, is especially wonderful.
