Picture of Karl Lagerfeld's Home Library

Do You Keep Your Books?

I once dreamed of having a house filled with books I'd read through the years, but three cross-country moves, one break-in to a storage unit, and a mother who is decidedly not a hoarder — at least of my things — and that dream seems more like a fantasy. This photograph, taken by photographer Todd Selby, is of Karl Lagerfeld's library. It's a little messy if you ask me, but you can tell he's a man with a reading plan.

Are you keeping books to build a library?
