A History of Bookshelves

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

I found a really interesting blog post in The Paris Review about the history of bookshelves.  Books weren't always stored vertically with their spines outwards...
Sometimes the pages of the book were painted so as to be recognised

"The first spine with printing dates from 1535, and it was then that books began to spin into the position we’re familiar with."   Read the article
