Diana and Rodrigo Camacho’s Library July 18, 2009

Filed under: Mexico — Kim @ 11:00 pm

Name: Diana and Rodrigo Camacho

Country: Mexico

About the library: We are putting it together after five years of moving from one city to another (and countries as well). It looks like we have settled down now. Our library now includes only about 800 books mostly non-fiction. We love books and try to read them in their native language, so our library includes books in spanish, english, russian and some French as those are the language we can read…

Tracy’s Library

Filed under: United States — Kim @ 10:58 pm

Name: Tracy

Country: United States

About the library: My library is my comfort zone, holding books and objects that give me good feelings. Most of the books are focused on what it is to be human – psychologically and spiritually. I particularly like the information developed by Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell about symbols in culture, religions, and dreams. My fiction is fantasy and science fiction.

Lis’ Library

Name: Lis

Country: Australia

About the library: Here is my little library. It is housed in a old Victorian book case given to me by my mother, also an avid reader of various literature. I love Australian, British and American literature but also occasionally read some popular fiction. I gradually move the pottery collected around the world, as I add more books.

Rodrigo’s Library

Filed under: Portugal — Kim @ 9:22 pm

Name: Rodrigo

Country: Portugal

About the library: The particular photo features Philosophy, Classical Studies, Anthropology, Art and Music books. The painting you see above the bureau (a 19th Century piece) is Dutch (19th Century, too); the tea table is Portuguese 18th Century in dark rosewwod; the Greek bust is a reproduction; the Greek vases on the bureau are reproductions mostly (very good ones – Museum certified – at that), but there is one that is authentic.

On the tea table you can see a small collection of 16th Century books chosen because of typography. The rest of the library contains books on Biology, Ethology, Psychology, Anthropology, History of Science and of Thought, Art, some important works on Physics and Mathematics, and diverse essays; the bulk is Biology, Anthropology, Sociology and Music. It results from the conjugation of my wife library and mine. We are both Professors, as were my two grandfathers and my father. This library will be dismantled in about two years, as we are moving to the country.
