Books I LOVE & Reference

I have a great personal reference library that I have been acquiring for many years. I have a genuine love of books, all books & reference them daily. I have had floor to ceiling shelves made to house this collection, which even has its own library ladder!

Here is a list of the books I go back to time & time again, for inspiration and information. I never fail to find what I’m looking for, even if I’m not looking for anything at all.
