100 Eccentric Bookshelves

From Climbing Vine Bookcases to Fire Escape Bookshelves

— November 28, 2013 — Art & Design
Anyone looking to organize their books and novels in something quirky and eclectic is in luck, because these eccentric bookshelves will definitely offer an eye-catching way to display all your reading material.

While simple shelves and book stands are often the most traditional ways to organize and display books, these eccentric designs are more for those who are interested in something a bit more artistic and abstract in design. Offering the chance for readers to creatively transform their book collections and libraries into wonderful pieces of art, these eccentric bookshelves will definitely put the spotlight on all the reading material you own.

From open birdhouse bookshelves to stackable square shelving and pixelated designs, these eccentric bookshelves are showcasing how displaying your interest in reading doesn't necessarily have to be boring or mundane.
