La Casa di Libri (Tambre, Italy)

Cost: Unknown

How many avid readers have wanted to curl up not with a good book, but in a good book?

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.

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.

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.
