Bibliomania or A Gentle Madness

Beautiful catalogue cover for Oak Knoll Special catalogue #3

"The Book-Collector's Dream"

Only a person inflicted with the addiction called bibliomania or a gentle madness will be able to fully appreciate these pictures.

hi alwyn and pearlie,

now I know who are the biblimania.

I enjoy looking at book filled bookcases and even at photographs of them. You may not believe me but I buy books of photographs of other people's libraries and admire them. Crazy eh?

No. You are not.

Which is why I like browsing www.anobii.com and www.librarything.com once in awhile. I suppose I cannot understand how people can sit in front of a painting for hours the same they cannot understand how we can sit in front of a bookshelf for hours just staring!
