Bookends are a popular item among international manufacturers: many examples can be found on the market at all levels of design, production quality and price. If you seek the finer things, here are a few. ALBERT O ALESSI
A vast amount of children’s literature features animals as main characters alongside their human cohorts, busying themselves in all sorts of challenges and adventures. In my case, they ranged from “Just So Stories for Little Children” by Kipling to “White Fang” by Jack London on through to Aesop’s fables; from Snoopy by Charles Schulz to the characters in Roald Dahl’s nursery rhymes. Many were the times I identified with them as I merrily engrossed myself in a book. These three characters come from the pages of history, perhaps as yet unwritten, and are not limited to simply being sandwiched between the covers of the books they hold up. They demand to be viewed in the splendor of their material, the most noble steel, and their colours. They want to sit calmly on our desks or bookshelves caring for volumes, notebooks, selected magazines. They are also slightly larger than other bookends on the market. Mi ria m Mi rri
