The most common, straightforward and simple way to arrange books is to place them on a flat surface and to provide them with an additional leaning support to one of the sides or the rear of the cover. The Bloom Bookcase exercises a very unusual way of storing and showcasing novels that incorporates a set of strings rather than panels.

Raw Edges designed a wooden loom that could take a range of dimensions and support varying numbers of cords that are fastened from top to bottom. Resembling a weaving machine, the eccentric bookshelf contraption integrates stoppers on each thread; Granta's young British novelists' work can be closed around them and seemingly suspended for a unique form of presentation.
