You Can Make a Face Bookshelf Like This One

Despite the amount of content I consume via digital screens, I still like to dust off the occasional paperback when I’m feeling the need for something more tactile. While I store my books in an an ordinary IKEA bookshelf, I’d much rather have one of these shelves that looks like a giant face.

Art and Creative Director Alexi McCarthy created this cool and unique shelving unit in the shape of a cartoon face. The squared-off jaw and simple eyeballs remind me of the doodles I used to draw in my notebooks as a kid.  As shown below, this guy looks best with white book covers for his teeth, while his hair could be black, brown, or possibly something more colorful if you’re going for a punk rock look. I actually think I’d stack just a few taller books in the middle and give him a mohawk.

Alexi has been asked if he has any plans to produce the shelf, but for now has decided to share instructions on his website (for personal use only), so you can build one for yourself. The design doesn’t look that difficult to build, assuming you have experience using a miter saw so you can get the angles right. If you decide to use the design, Alexi asks that you consider making a donation to Room to Read, a charity that helps support literacy and education for children in low-income communities.
