<h2>La Casa di Libri (Tambre, Italy)</h2>
How many avid readers have wanted to curl up not with a good book, but in a good book?<br><br>
Not too many, I'll bet, but for those who do, Venetian artist Livio De Marchi has you covered. De Marchi, a renowned sculptor, created La Casa di Libri (literally, "House of Books") for book lovers around the world.<br><br>
Of course, like any true bibliophile, De Marchi didn't want to ruin real books for the sake of constructing his house--so instead, the house incorporates book-oriented designs in everything from the furniture to the outer walls.<br><br>
The house features walls and doors carved to look like bookshelves (with books on them), tables and chairs made of books--even a bed that rests on the pages of a giant book. The fence around the house consists of colored pencils, and the gate is a giant pair of reading glasses.
