This shelf treasures your favorite books and plays with the ideas of lightness, weight, and the act of transporting heavy objects.
The idea began with the exploration of moving ones favorite objects frequently. I climbed the steps of my five floor walk up in NYC with many varied amounts of books in a variety of test holders to find the optimum amount and weight to move books in multiplicity. Two groups of 15 were easily carried [like a milkmaid with a yoke of two milk buckets] and the steel frame can be carried over your shoulder [like a wanderer's stick and kerchief].
I researched the best way to store books and found that in small groups, lying flat is actually preferable. Each loop holds 15 books, each bookshelf then displays approximately 60 of your dearest books.
