The book lighting of Philip Hansen, a designer at Typewriter Boneyard, is utterly novel (pun intended). Although this is not the first, nor will it be the last, that someone reimagines the common book as something other than reading material, this particular book lighting series is one that will hard to top.
Simple and stylish, the book lighting features a basic cutout that allows the bulb and light switch to poke straight out from. Using classic hardcovers that have been found in thrift stores around San Diego, California, there are a slew of key elements including color, bulb and texture that come together to create one of these quaint book lighting designs. They would make a great gift.
