A Bookshelf in the Shape of a Man

Posted on June 3, 2006

Any Amount of Books, a bookstore in London, is selling an unusual bookshelf called the Bookman> that comes in the shape of a man. Here is how Any Amount of Books describes their Bookman.

The Bookman is a bookshelf in the shape of a man and is a highly decorative piece of furniture as well as a sculpture.

Designed by East Anglian artist Kazmierz Szmauz who also designed the CDMan, the DVDMan and Videoman. However, as booksellers we regard Bookman as his highest achievement. The Bookman holds about 100 books and looks most splendid when they are leatherbound books which we can also supply.

He measures 70 inches high by 45 inches wide and is made from Mahogany, although other woods can be used. Shelves are best adapted to books beneath 8 inches in height.

The Bookman costs $1700 U.S. Any Amount of Books also sells a couple other versions of these man-shaped bookshelves. They are great looking bookshelves.
