LETS DO SOME SHELF PORN WITH MY SHELF PORN

Here we have my Marvel Essential Volumes and my DC Showcase Volumes.

For this post I thought about sharing with part of my book collection through the art of Shelf Porn. When a collector accumulates a lot of items which are simply too cool, too awesome, too sexy to be kept hidden from human eyes, he/she puts them on shelves so that people can admire them. When the collector is unable to attend the potential on-lookers in his/her home, he/she takes photos of those elusive objects of desire. Detailed, gorgeous high definition photos that properly capture the charm of his beloved Collector Items and that will make others salivate once they see them uploaded in the internet. Those kind of photos are commonly referred to as Shelf Porn.

Today I would like to share with you. some of my Shelf Porn. Enjoy.

I tend to group my books according to their size and not their format. That way they can physically support each other and minimize spine bending. Sometimes I get lucky and can put together books with similar themes like my DC Comics books and my Modern Masters books.
Hardcover books that are mainly prose are put together whenever I can put them. Granted that Iron Wok Jan #25 manga is technically a comic and out of place, but I’m running a bit short of space in my shelf.
My Harlan Ellison books carry some of the biggest sentimental value in my collection. I have a special place for my special books.
