Mark A. Reigelman, a designer based in Brooklyn, New York, has created a clever bookshelf that essentially makes the books do all of the work. Shaped like a large ruler, the shelf boasts notches that the books are meant to be slotted into. When this is done, the novels themselves become the shelves, albeit small ones.

Quite imaginative, Mark A. Reigelman's design bucks tradition for something a little more visually stimulating. Whether the books are used as extra surfaces in the living space or more of a sculptural display, the shelving unit will delight people in regards to both use and sight. A rather simple concept, Mark A. Reigelman created the shelving unit out of wood. It is designed to lean against the wall. Stats for Cleverly Notched Bookshelves Trending: Older & Mild
