London, Feb 17 (ANI): An Italian artist has built a house that is made entirely in the shape of books.

Livio De Marchi designed his home to look like a novel, and it included his dining table and chairs right up to the winding staircase.

The bookish house even had a pair of reading glasses as its gate, and colouring pencils as its fence.

De Marchi revealed that he constructed it because he wanted it to be different from everybody elses.

I just allowed my inner fantasy world to run free and carved from the wood what I saw inside myself, the Daily Express quoted him as telling the Austrian Times. (ANI)
