Would You Ever Store Your Cookbooks Facing Out Like This?

How do you store your cookbooks? Everyone is different, as we've seen before, but I think this cookbook storage solution — facing out, like at a bookstore — is a little more unusual than most. What do you think?

I'm a little mixed about this look, to be honest. On the one hand, I love that you can easily see the cookbooks — the whole cover, not just the spine. We know some cookbook covers are beautiful and enticing, so this seems like a nice way to show them off. 

On the other hand, the fact that the books are so exposed makes the whole thing look a little staged and forced. Maybe I'm just feeling romantic, but I like the look traditional bookshelves, titles standing side by side, some books off-kilter or ajar.

On the other other hand, this display serves as wall decor in and of itself, so hey! No need to hang a painting!

I'm torn: what do you think?
