Simple Bookshelf Space-Savers

The Letter Holder Bookend Makes Use of an Otherwise Wasted Space

— June 28, 2013 — Art & Design
The Letter Holder Bookend is a simple solution to common problem that not many people would pick up on. Instead of using a fanciful bookend to keep books in place, the Letter Holder Bookend easily keeps things in order, but also adds an extra slot to keep letters or other paper miscellanea.

The Letter Holder Bookend features a sleek black or white silhouette that will fit ergonomically well with the very books that it looks to hold in place. Adding one on either side of the shelf can help to make the most of every inch and put mail in an easily spotted location.

Not just for mail, the Letter Holder Bookend can also hold other small office essentials like sticky notes or pens.
