Enough shelves! (at least for a little while)

The client owns an extensive collection of books on the subject of Islamic history, so he requested that we create this building with the maximum capacity for its storage and exhibition.

It's carefully designed to be earthquake-proof, but now that the subject has come up I wonder if it would be good to have a little something to restrain the books from falling out of the shelves if the building is shaken.

Link thanks to haikujaguar.

I'm looking at it again, and wondering appearance and storage for the very tall ladder or ladders would be.

Ditto on the ladders, although with all the vertical dividers the shelves themselves are probably pretty climbable.

Just wow. Reminds me a bit of what a parental friend in upstate NY has done.

That's fabulous.

Books falling out of shelves in an earthquake aren't so bad. Whole bookshelves falling over, that's a problem. Especially if they're metal storage shelves and get all twisted when they fall, like mine did in '89.
