Eccentric Library

For all of you who dream of being able to buy all the beautiful books you ever wanted, Wired recently featured a private library of a guy named Jay Walker who made his money in technology, then started collecting rare and beautiful books.




Here, you can leaf through a Kelmscott Press edition of Chaucer's works, reading by the light of a chandelier formerly used in a James Bond film, or browse the stacks as a Sputnik satellite and other shiny items dangle overhead. Would LOVE to see this place....

oh, if you get an invitation I want to go too.... in my old life I had a big collection of books (just art books and such that mattered to me) I am slowly rebuilding that collection. I love books and words and paper.
