Readers who eschew chairs or divans and prefer to sprawl out on a rug when diving into their favorite tome will enjoy steeping themselves in literary history with the 'Bookworm' rug. Decorated with an enlarged photograph of the spines of famous novels, the rug subtly encourages those upon it to read up.

The photograph on the Bookworm rug pictures a wide array of genres and time periods. It includes hardcore philosophy like Fromm's 'Marx's Concept of Man,' classic fantasy in Tolkien's 'Hobbit,' and renowned literature like Orwell's 'Nineteen Eighty-Four.' The Bookworm rug is part of a series of printed products by artist Cassia Beck that use the bookshelf image. Other products in the series include a tote bag, pillows, a wall clock, a beach towel and more.
