Bookends of the Earth by Garth Borovicka Look Like Mini Dioramas

It's nothing but a joy to see the weird and wonderful ways that artists switch up the traditional bookend with clever designs, and the Bookends of the Earth by Garth Borovicka are definitely no exception.

Looking like mini dioramas of some of Earth's familiar sights, the bookends come in sets of two (of course!) and are made from wood, intricately carved and heavy enough to keep even the most cumbersome of books in place. This comes as a relief to me because I find many bookends only appropriate for novels, while the majority of my books are a bit oversized.

Featuring everything from miniature trees to tiny automobiles, Bookends of the Earth by Garth Borovicka look like an extension of the wonderful worlds that are hidden behind the covers of the very books they hold firmly in place.
