The Book Shelf

The intention of The Book Shelf design is to bring to life an everyday object well-liked by everyone in form of a new practical design that symbolises something greater than the object itself. Playing with the roles of form and function and an element of surprise, the super-sized book creates a library of stories, adventures, knowledge and fairytales. It represents a door into your own imagination and creativity, reproducing the feeling of immersion in itself. The book as a book shelf offers a blank canvas to be filled with stories and knowldege, encouraging your mind to break free of the everyday. It is ‚just’ a book shelf but it creates a focal point by standing out as a centerpiece in its own right without need for further decoration. While the design is simple and modern to fit into any contemporary or minimalistic home or commercial interior, it brings along a sense of romanticism and cosiness.

The Secret History of Second-Hand Books

An exhibition by freelance writer Wayne Gooderham Back at The Café at Foyles, First Floor, Charing Cross Road, London. To 13th December.

After years of buying second-hand books, writer Wayne Gooderham began to notice he was accidentally accumulating an intriguing sub-collection: second-hand books inscribed with personal messages. Ranging from the awkward scratchings of adolescent infatuation to the resentful recriminations of love affairs gone awry, each and every scribble and scrawl told a different story. Now Wayne has selected the very best examples from his collection and will be displaying these in a special exhibition in the Café at Foyles - a must for bibliophiles, book lovers and anyone who appreciates the magic of the physical book. Please note that due to the arrangement of the Café, viewing of the artwork may be restricted.
