You might think a bookcase is a bookcase and what is the big deal? It's not until you start to search for one for your home you'll soon realize there are actually many various kinds available. They come in all kinds of solid woods from oak, pine and beech still in their natural state, or waxed or varnished in a darker hue, to painted white or something brighter for a real funky style. Tall, short, wide and thin, with or without drawers and cupboards, the range is huge and it won't take long to find a solution to your storage and display needs.
Books first appeared in the world as scrolls. These scrolls were usually inscribed by hand and so their production was quite costly. Religious institutions, libraries and ancient universities prized the books highly. These necessitated the need for specialized containers or boxes which were easily accessible for easy referencing. Initially the shelved containers were much deeper and separated into many compartments for easier access. The shelving was usually hidden away in closets that blended with the home decor or in private study rooms.
Large holiday villages make an impressive display when staged on an upper shelf, within view from across the room or while sitting and watching TV. If your TV is part of a bookcase or entertainment unit, arrange your display around the TV, so that there is some holiday interest when the TV is not in use.
