Good Book Catalogue is an online book catalogue.


There is a cosiness in having books around, especially those worn editions crowded with sticky notes. This website is a digital catalogue of one person’s bookshelf. As much as possible the pictures featured here are their own, well-loved copies.

Many of us fall into the pages of books in childhood – sustaining an imagination and nourishing our curiosity. Some of us fall out of the habit later in life. Yet when reading accompanies us through moments of grief, solitude, heartbreak and sickness, it may elevate our spirits & provide perspective on our diverse and fascinating world. This page is curated by designer Emma Hursey.

I work and live in Rainbow Beach, Australia, on the traditional lands of the Gubbi Gubbi people. I pay my respect to their ancestors and elders—past, present and future—and value the role of storytelling in their culture, which is amongst the oldest living cultures in the world.
