    Very, very nice. My only concern with your collection is that there is so much sunlight so near to the book cases. Aren't you afraid of the sun fading some of the spines?

    That is an awesome photograph - the international IT spread. Awesome. Love a new collector's thread.

    Great looking collection, picontin. Some fascinating editions.
    I second the UV film recommendation. Very, very cheap, when you consider the value of what it's protecting. We had it professionally installed on a 2.4 x 1.5 metre window, for AU$300.

    The collection looks great! I always like seeing shelves with certain books standing out. That's one of the biggest downsides of having TOO many books, because then you have to turn them all sideways. There's only so much room you can take up, lol. Good job!
