Bookworms will be pleased to know that there’s another way to store and display books aside from shelves. In addition to furniture that incorporates space where you can arrange your books (like the Sunflower Chair), there are installations like the Hanging Book Rack that lets you do it with more flair.
As the name indicates, it’s a book rack in the unconventional sense because it doesn’t have shelves where you’re supposed to arrange your books. Instead, it looks like a coat rack, with its wooden plates and all. At the bottom of these plates are waxed cotton strings that hold the books in place, and they function as a bookmark, at the same time, too.
To account for varying book thickness, the wooden plates can be moved from left to right to make sure everything fits. The Hanging Book rack can fit up to twelve books, and that should be more than enough for your Book of the Month reads.
The Hanging Book Rack is available online for $210(USD) from OldandCold’s Etsy shop. A mini version that can fit six books is available for $110.
