,If you have a large wall to fill with bookcases, its best to make sure they have flush sides so they can be lined up next to each other to fill the entire space.
This wasnt always the case, though, as books themselves and bookcases were incredibly expensive items that could only be bought by the highest of society. They were a symbol of wealth, status and intellectuality that marked nobles and academics. How things have changed! These days bookcases and bookshelves are within the price range of everyone.
Very much like the earliest bookcases that adorned the elegant libraries of Europe in the middle ages, solid woods are still used on most high quality bookcases.

It is used in many styles that are popular today, including Mission, Traditional, Colonial, Shabby Chic, and Contemporary.
