John Clarke Mills has been updating us on the progress of his creation of a Victorian style library for the 1890s San Francisco Victorian home he’s been renovating. The library is done and it looks great. I followed this project with keen interest because I have fantasies about doing a Victorian/steampunk number on my library one day. Love the library ladder. Gotta have one of those!

    That’s gorgeous, think the ladder should be on a runner so you can can scoot along the shelves, looking for that elusive volume. :)
