how is this built?

are these bookshelves built into the wall or are they just nailed to the wall? how are the books being held in there if they are just picture frames?

I think they are just nailed to the wall. If you look at the lower right corner one, you can see the edge of the last book poking out the right side, so they are not recessed. Really neat look.

Ha! It took me a minute to see it. It really looks recessed at first!

The top frame shows that they are recessed to some extent, though not entirely. Looks like small boards were added (probably nailed?) to the top and bottom.
