Book lovers' heaven?

I thought I would just post this link to a bookcase/room on exhibition at the V & A which I saw in the paper. It is my idea of heaven - if I couldn't have a beautiful, traditional, library, one big room with a gallery round the top level of shelves and a sweet winding staircase to reach it.

I like the idea of the reading nooks at various levels.

Oh I do want a library to live in. <sigh>

I'm down in London this weekend and was considering going to the V&A so might see this. Admittedly, I'm also rather tempted by the surrealist exhibition at the Barbican and I only have time to go to one. I'll report back if the V&A is the winner!
