What do you think of reversed books on bookcases? I still haven’t made up my mind on that. I admit it creates a coherent and clean result, a seamless background to a more minimalistic or scandinavian home design. Helps a lot when you possess books with an ugly spine or subject you’re not interested in reading again (I know I have loads of old uni books I’ll never ever read again but not feeling like parting ways with them). On the other hand, if you actually want to use/showcase your precious hardcovers, then it is completely unpractical (not to mention a kind of blasphemy) not to place them in their rightful manner. Of course, like all things, there is always the middle way solution, where you can style your books guided by how you actually use them to mix and match the shown/hidden spines. So how do you do it? How are the books placed on your bookcase?
