Pandemic Book Browsing : Juxtaposition City

This guy is the Executive Director of the Kansas City Public Library, but I find the juxtaposition of his overall look and the loft apartment to be kind of an odd one. The two don’t look like they go together, particularly the floating canopy bed in the middle of it all. Probably was a mistake to make conclusions about someone based on their appearance. In fact, I coined a phrase that might be easier to remember: Don’t judge a text by its dust jacket. :)

    Kemper is a big KC name in banking. His furnishings rather look like those of a banker living in an artist’s loft—with a zillion books.

      So my instinct wasn’t wrong. I thought he looked out of place.

    I barely noticed the bed as I was staring at all his stacks. What an impressive collection! I especially like how he has a stack of books between the two main bookcases in his study- they fit in that gap just perfectly and I imagine soon he’ll have them all the way up to the ceiling!

    I’m uneasy when I see books piled up to a height of several feet. Crashes apart, it’s a major pain if you want a book from the bottom of the pile. But it might be an aid to weeding the collection–get rid of the bottom foot!

    There’s a bed? I’m going back
