Knob Creek Metal Arts deserves a gold star for creating these 8-bit Heart Bookends. The Etsy metal crafters have created a set of bookends that are both geeky and romantic at the same time, a rare combination. The 8-bit Heart Bookends are made out of steel and are strong enough to hold up a pile of strategy guides, gaming magazines and then some.
Today's games have lifelike graphics, but many gamers still love the look of 8-bit games from years past. There's just something about a blocky sprite jumping around the screen that feels right. Crafters have responded to this nostalgia, creating a ton of items designed to look more like they belong in a Nintendo game than in real-life.
