Shelf Porn: Bookshelves of Ralfy Acuña

From Mr. Ralfy Acuña:

“I collect all sorts of books, but mostly novels, poems, plays, art books, works about history and music, and primary sources for works about the social and natural sciences. Most of them are used or new books purchased at 50 to 80 pct off, but the most valuable for me is Jung’s Red Book.


I’m currently looking for the second volume of Letters of the Great Artists, the other two volumes of Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago, Dunn’s edition of The Perfumed Garden, the Modern Library edition of Fowles’ The Magus, the Twentieth-Century Classics edition of Abe’s The Woman in the Dunes, The Way of Hermes (trans. Salaman and others), Tales of Hoffmann (Heritage Press), Reporting Vietnam (two volumes, Library of America), the Clay Sanskrit Library, and The Rienner Anthology of African Literature.



Paul Lorenzo (http://www.lorenzophotogallery.com/) photographed the books and shelves, and Architect Wendell Florentin (0916-4922418) designed the shelves.”

Moleskine Images from Peter Tan

 

From Peter Tan,

“Three are moleskine while the other 2 are Front Notebook & an old diary.

I am a 30 year old civil engineer working for a engineering design firm in Ortigas. My interests are photography, notebooks, books, pens, stamps, graphics, etc. I usually use Moleskine Square Notebooks, the lines help me in my work sketches & note alignment. I use the square skine for work drawings when in the field where you have to draw without rulers.”

“As you can see the spines are the first to go in my moleskine. I tried other notebooks over the years but always buy a moleskine when I get the chance.”

“The contents of my notebooks are like I said, work sketches, meeting schedules, reminders, contact information. If I have a nice family or travel photo then I just print these in 2R size & paste them on a page with some notes about the picture.”

“After several years when you read the notebooks again, it is like a diary of sorts.”

“I have a flickr account if you want to see some of my “artsy” photography images. – http://www.flickr.com/photos/57857775@N03/
