Garth Borovicka Bookends Are Out of This World

These naturally beautiful Garth Borovicka Bookends are the perfect way to keep books alight. These sculptural designs were created by Chicago artist and designer Garth Borovicka and are entitled, ‘Bookends of the Earth.’ These are high quality items crafted from hand using solid wood.

As you can see by the bases of the bookends, the layers of growth shown in the wood rings representing the life of a tree. Like nature, each set has no complete duplicate, especially considering the trees and rocks are moveable and thereby arranged according to the user’s preferences.

Though they are sold in pairs, they are cut from a larger landscape. So, if you can get a little creative with these bookends by combining them in a line, they grow into a breathtaking landscape.
