Hanging Books Shelf

Hanging Books Shelf

Unique optical illusion shelf holds and displays books hanging from a string.

Hanging books shelf made by husband and wife furniture makers Agusta and Gustav (AGUSTAV) in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Books rest on small wooden plates and hang from waxed cotton strings.

Plates can be moved back and forth to control the height of which the book hangs, making it easy to line up different sized books in a straight line.

    All I see is books on strings hanging from pegs.
    No book illusion. No peg illusion. No string illusion.
