Building the better bookshelf


Does the number of books in your home worry you? Do you lose track of the books you’re most interested in?

Well, sir/madame, Behold the single book bookshelf:

Single Book Bookshelf (Via Curbed)

Finally, you can present a minimalist literary life, and tastefully curate a single book draped across a cool sheet of Belgian-designed acrylic. And it’s a way to highlight those books in your pile you really want to read … although it’s worht noting that this designer, Belgian Filip Janssens, has other designs as well that allow for the display of more than one book at a time …
