Bookshelf Display: Book Spines Turned In

Is this the backlash to displaying books by color? A friend mentioned seeing a book shelf where all the book spines were turned in so you only saw the whites of the pages. Seems like a sleek way to display those books you’ve read but can’t bare to part with — and don't need to locate any time soon!

Above are three examples but has anyone tried this in their home? We’d love to know.

Also, use caution when googling “spine turned in.” Ouch!
