Research confirms that most people buy books based upon the look of the cover art and design more than anything else, and a new product called “Slim” has been introduced with the stated purpose that it “pays tribute to the covers of books.”
The clear acrylic book holder comes in two sizes: Demi and Standard. The Standard Slim includes eight slots, while the Demi Slims offers four. Each individual slot holds 1-3 books, depending on the thickness of the book.
Anyone with books may wonder why they should get a product like this when you can stuff your books on a regular shelf. The answer is that the Slim is built not for the primary purpose of holding books, but for the purpose of displaying your favorite, cool covers.
The Slim is designed by Marianne van Ooij, based in Brooklyn, NY.
