  1. What an awesome new way for me to gouge the shit out of me ankles when I walk past a book-case.

  2. You need wider aisles between your bookcases, then.

    Looks to be the work of a designer named Hiroshi Sasagawa — c’mon guys, you need to give credit where credit is due — and I think I’ll be looking for these the next time I go browsing through a design store.

    Just put them at eye level.

  4. Cute idea, but $15? For something that looks like a child’s craft project? Heck, I’ll have my kid do it for you for only $10! (Actually, no, I don’t have kids.)

  5. It looks a bit more than a child’s craft project- all the metally ness- but yeah, 15$ for a pair is a bit much on my budget. I think we’ve all gotten used to mass production from China, though, and factories pumping these things out by the dozens, which is why the price is horrifying.

    I like, though. The swine would go perfectly in my Orwell / Doctorow / Huxley collection.

  6. @ #1:

    Exactly. Pay money to add something frivolous that could potentially hurt you.

    Not to mention the fact that it would get in the way (what happens when you need to take a couple of books out?).

    -shakes head-

  7. Easily done with scissors and plastic placemats (so it doesn’t maim the fragile boingboinger) or thin copper plates (steampunks only).
