Once upon a time, there was a high-tech heyday where everybody decided to give e-books a whirl. Not a particularly lengthy chapter, many people reverted back to traditional books before long, preferring the feel of pages turning under their fingertips to the single tap of an arrow on a smudged screen. Today’s designers have recognized this reversal in trends and have played out their dialogue to a T, delighting bookworms everywhere by churning out a variety of chic bookcases.
