Here be the well-stocked libraries, study and writing rooms of famous men, thanks to a handy compilation by The Art of Manliness. Rudyard Kipling’s study is suitably rustic; William F. Buckley’s is a living example of what it means to have order in chaos, and Neil Gaiman’s gazebo retreat has too much charm for words. And Norman Mailer, who designed the most amazing stuff when he was alive, obviously saved the coolest bookshelves-filled apartment for himself.
