What makes a book town?
It can’t be too big—not a city, but a genuine town, usually in a rural setting. It has to have bookshops—not one or two, but a real concentration, where a bibliophile might spend hours, even days, browsing. Usually a book town begins with a couple of secondhand bookstores and later grows to offer new books, too.But mostly, they have a lot of books for sale.Hobart, New York, is a perfect example of how having one bookstore in a small town is nice, but having many bookstores together makes a place special—a destination. Since the 1970s, book towns like it have been springing up all over the world. There are now dozens of them, from Australia and Finland to India and South Korea.In the forthcoming Book Towns, journalist Alex Johnson catalogues these most charming of tourist destinations. He spoke to Atlas Obscura about the pleasures of out-of-the-way places defined by their books.

Terreria is part modular furniture and part Italian farmhouse window looking out over the countryside. The single elements can be assembled to produce an infinite number of configurations and exploit the many potentials of ceramic. Terracotta components are available in four different geometric configurations. Blocks are 30.5cm deep, 40cm high and vary in width between 17 and 29 cm.

The apparent rigidity of a modular structure created by the intersection of tubular elements reveals itself as part of a 20 creative project, starting from the logo. The 4 shelves incorporated in the supporting module, with a slight tilt to never drop books, magazines and objects, can be lacquered even in colors different from the structural frame.

Worth reading the thread for other examples of attic bookshelves and library laddersI converted my attic, which I was always too frightened to enter anyway, into extra bookshelf space. I have a ladder!!! I only know one other person with a ladder @Cecelia_Ahern pic.twitter.com/H2S60x3yDT— John Boyne (@john_boyne) February 9, 2018
