Mailbooks For Good is an innovation in book publishing. Thanks to a specially designed dust jacket once readers have finished the books, they are instructed to turn them inside out and reseal them. The books become pre-paid pre-addressed parcels ready to be delivered to charity.
My talented Spanish friends, Laura and Carlos – now living and working in Australia – helped creating this project. Truly awesome.
Personally I would have added a way for the book owner to write a note in the book cover, so you could leave your name and personal story or opinion in the book for the next owner to read. I think this personal touch would make people feel even more connected – and grateful for this great ‘pass it on’ concept.
The video depicts the revolutionary nature of the life cycle of a droplet of water and it’s cyclical journey. The project was a three-fold collaboration between myself, Helen Friel and Jess Deacon. From the original idea, through the creative development and process, our individual skill sets enabled the project to spring to life.

While everyone is thinking vertical with book storage, here we have an absolutely stunning piece of furniture that looks to the horizontal plains for functional storage. With ‘Booken,’ each book becomes a part of the structural form.
Not only is the structure made of books being placed horizontally, but their draped areas are also serving as place holders for whatever part has been left off on whilst reading. This, in turn helps readers to come back to some of the tried and true favorites after the latest read is over. Raw Edges and furniture specialists Lema worked together on this ultimate bookworm storage piece.
This video made me smile. Not because it’s hot. But because it’s kinda funny.
A bookmark is stuck in a forgotten book that is one day knocked over by wind. It experiences its environment by surfing the pages that turn in to ocean-waves, enjoying the ride of its life. As the book cover closes light reveals new challenges.

I don’t read books. But man, do I ever enjoy this design!
This is the Book Hook designed by Tell Ritterbach. And this is where you can buy it.
“The classic paper stripe as a bookmark has always been a temporary solution for me. Because I like to leave my books open I got the idea of a whole new concept.
I wanted something better. Something, whos shape similars the shape of the opened book, like a negative to the positive” and prevents it from damages. With that the idea of book hook was born. With my first sketches I let it produce as a prototype. After more improvement with regard to the material, angle and edge devolution was a marketable product of high-quality produced.
The book hook is an innovative bookmark, a practical storing place and a beautiful design object at once. I am sure that especially readers will like my book hook and it willbe a welcome gift idea for every occasion”, Tell Ritterbach says.
Thanks to Mikkel for finding this.
