    Thank you! :heart:

    It is from low-ya. I immediately fell in love with the secret doors.

    Oh cool thanks, they look really reasonable too, though since they appear to be japanese the shipping probably isnt very cheap and it looks like I probably cant get it.

    So I moved last week. So many boxes. I finally unpacked all of my magazines:

    Now the mammoth task of sorting them all and putting them in bookcases.

    Is there a thread on magazine storage, shelving?

    I've been looking for 'open' bookcases with adjustable, sloping shelving. But it's been insanely difficult simply searching for this type of shelving unit online! Using search terms like 'angled', 'sloped', 'tilted' bookshelf, I keep getting ladder shelves or other kooky sideways angled units.

    Something in the spirit of this modular system by WOGG (design-milk.com) or Vitsoe 606 by Rams inspired but ya know apartment friendly
    but not the price of my apartment! End result: book and magazine covers are displayed, facing forward.

    Free standing bookcases with periodical style angled shelving: (remodelista.com)

    NOT like this ladder shelf with angled legs (familyhandyman.com)

    Nor tip-turned shelf (decorpad.com)

    Haha you’re right. I should just leave it as it is. Saves me the trouble of sorting everything. All I need is a couch and the living room is done.

    ^^^ Reminds me of yesteryear’s bookshops that were lined with books from floor to ceiling, and where the magazine section were sprawled out just like you have here on tabletops.

    Enjoy it like this for a little while longer if you can. (You know, if you level out to an even plane, put a piece of heavy glass on it, you’d have yourself a nice huge coffee table…)

    Technically I have mine in boxes stacked inside my desk cabinets and under my desk, its not very practical considering it prevents me from using my pedals, but it sort of hold up my desk.

    Here's my shelf that's running out of space! :heart:

    Serious question though - it's in my bedroom and I was thinking of getting an air humidifier. Do you guys know if it can ruin the magazines? Or are humidifiers harmless for them? Maybe somebody has similar experience.

    This article is about museum, but you find basic information about most important factors which impact of destruction process. Of course, your room is not museum, but this knowlage is very important if you want magazine colletions in good conditions. You should focuse on informations about paper. Magazine collection is not a very important for musuem and find informations about glossy paper is a very hard.
    For example @mikel should cover up the magazines which are next to windowsill due to outflow of light. Acid-free paper is very popular in conservation, but i had only experience in photos storage.

    So I still havent moved into my room yet but we're making some fast progress now and should be all set in a few weeks(as you can see with all the other misc stuff lying around). So now I am taking stock of all that I have. I was concerned that it all may not make it into the book shelf but I think they just might all fit. Most of this I have collected all throughout last year. Let me tell you, it wasn't cheap, but I had the expendable income.

    ^^^ Loving the scattered, disheveled and the messiness!
    Lovely, mike. Very archival room; the no-nonsense clinical shelves add to the clean lines perfectly. But, I'm missing the old bookstore pile vibe of the mess before!
