If you like to read, you probably have at least a few books lying around and not neatly placed on bookshelves. There are lots and lots of choices for bookends to keep them tidy, but I really like the idea of these bookends that look like books.
These fun Bibliophile Bookends were created by illustrator and shop owner Jane Mount for Chronicle Books. They’re great because no matter what books you have in your collection, you’ll automatically end up with classics like Moby Dick, Jane Eyre, A Tale of Two Cities, and Pride & Prejudice. Since they’re made from ceramic, they’ve got plenty of weight, which is of critical importance when it comes to bookends. After all, you don’t want them sliding around when you put books in between them.
The Bibliophile Bookends are available for $60 a set from Chronicle Books, though you might be able to find them for less on Amazon. If you love Jane’s art style, check out her book Bibliophile, which is a fantastic compilation of art and information about classic books, and some of the greatest bookstores to find them in. It also makes a great companion gift if you’re thinking of giving the bookends to a booklover on your shopping list.
