Display Book Shelf - Daniel Eatock

Our poor Billy bookshelves are sagging because I have ridiculously overloaded them with charity shop impulse buys. New shelves are on the list.

Perhaps to tie in with the sagging theme we should get this one from artist Daniel Eatock

The shelf sags under the weight of its contents in a graceful arc, the top edges of all the books are perfectly flush as a result of a conscious selection of volumes chosen to accommodate (or compensate for) the arc of the sagging shelf.

I think it looks like the shelf is smiling.
