Live for Films

I've moved to

Neil Gaiman’s library

Posted by LiveFor on September 4, 2009

booksHow cool is this. I so want a library like this. If any one is willing to donate a big house to the Live for Films cause that includes a library like this I will be more than happy to accept it.

If Mr Gaiman happens to be reading this I would be more than happy to pop round for a cup of tea while interviewing you in the library.

The good people over at Shelfari had this to say and lots more photos.

Gaiman first gained wide acclaim with his complex and literate 75-issue comic series The Sandman, and has since broadened his scope to write award-winning and bestselling novels (American Gods, Anansi Boys), screenplays (“Beowulf”) and yes, he still continues to write comics. His books Stardust and Coraline were both adapted for the screen and his most recent novel The Graveyard Book was awarded the Newbury Medal and, just last month, a Hugo Award for Best Novel.

Naturally we’d assumed that someone whose work is filled with references ranging from literary to mythological would have a fairly extensive library but even so, we were a bit unprepared for the scope of what he sent us. In the basement of his house of secrets we find a room that’s wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling with books (along with a scattering of awards, gargoyles and felines).
