'A room without books is like a body without soul.' - Cicero
In Bibliostyle, interior designer Nina Freudenberger teams up with New Yorker writer Sadie Stein, and Architectural Digest photographer Shade Degges to celebrate the beauty of books and the personal touch they bring to the homes they live in.
Though books are beautiful objects in their own right, our connection to them goes beyond the physical. In every home featured in Bibliostyle, the library is the undisputed heart of the home, a place that holds the homeowner's passions, values and stories in its books.
With its gorgeous photography, Bibliostyle offers a peek into the private libraries of passionate readers from all over the world and all walks of life, including Karle Ove Knausgaard, Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly, Silvia Whitman and Phillip Lim. Featuring an abundance of rare collections, floor-to-ceiling shelves and stacks upon stacks of books, Bibliostyle is a visual feast and inspiration for every bibliophile.
