Literal Book Shelf   (+11)  [vote for, against]
Literal books, eh?

Not wanting to dispose of my set of encyclopedia from the soviet era, and not wanting to use up scarce shelf space to store them, there was very little I could do.

Very little, that is, until the Literal Book Shelf hit the market!

The Literal Book Shelf are special brackets that attach to the hard cover of a book - that mount the book to a wall parallel to the floor, spine facing out - which turns a book into shelf space!

Keep your literature on a Book Shelf today - literally!

Jim Rosenau's "Second Editions" http://thisintothat...secondeditions.html
A Berkeley artist is making book shelves out of books. (The shelf itself and the support struts are made out of books.) They're pretty, and often the titles together make some ironical point about the books' collective subject. I saw his work at a local art show. [jutta, Nov 16 2004]
