Bookshelf Porn gathers interesting pictures of books and bookshelves. That is all.

This labyrinth of 250,000 books, entitled aMAZEme, is installed at The Clore Ballroom in the Royal Festival Hall in London. The maze is constructed of 250,000 remaindered, second-hand and new books. The photo is by Tony Kyriacou / Rex Features, per the Facebook page.

Here are a couple of local images posted recently at LA Observed:
