A ‘Historic Book Odour Wheel’ which has been developed to document and archive the aroma associated with old books, is being presented in a study in the open access journal Heritage chers at UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage created the wheel as part of an experiment in which they asked visitors to St Paul’s Cathedral’s Dean and Chapter library in .

The smell of a book which has just been unpacked, or the smell which has been kept on a shelf for years, it is simply magical. Chris’ father gave him a book on his birthday. Immediately after ripping apart the packaging, Chris retrieved the book and gazed at it.

If you store your books in a cool, dry location, there's a much better chance that you'll avoid much of the bad odor that old books can develop. Despite your best efforts, though, you may find mold or mildew on your books. Unfortunately, this may make them smell musty.

A book’s smell is also influenced by its environment and materials it encounters over the course of its life (which is why some books have hints of cigarette smoke, others smell a little like coffee, and still others, cat dander).
