Livio de Marchi’s House of Books

Here is a dream house for all those who love books! Venetian sculptor and carver Livio de Marchi has created this abode in which all the furniture, the tables, beds, desks and chairs, incorporate carved book forms. Even the exterior is compiled of wooden books. For more pictures of the Casa di Libri, visit Livio de Marchi’s web site at

  1. This website is a booklover’s dream. It is a fanciful, beautifully designed, cleverly executed, imaginative use of the book form to create objects ranging from furniture to a boat. Well worth viewing.
