If you are looking for unique book shelving to display your collection in a less boring manner, try looking at what the Etsy shop OldAndCold has to offer. The creative shelves aren't your typical case-like structures; they dangle books instead of encasing them.
Aptly dubbed Hanging Book Racks, the shelves were created by the Etsy owners to allow people to get rid of their hefty shelving units and create more space, while still providing a stunning aesthetic.
Depending on the size of the shelf that you order, you can hang approximately 12 books from its coinciding pins. And you don't have to worry about your books being damaged because they hang from wax-cottoned string and rest on small wooden plates.
