Once the designer Ed Lewis thought: "It would be fun to turn the bookshelf backwards so that the books are still on it, or rather, under it!" The initial thought was to stick the books, but this is completely dysfunctional and blasphemous in relation to the books. And then the original idea was born, how correctly to realize the idea! This optical trick, invented by the designer, is notit damages books, you can take any of them, and then easily bring it back into place. What's the secret? Now you will understand everything, moreover, you can make such an unusual bookshelf with your own hands. In addition to the usual materials for the shelf (board + fasteners to the wall), you will also need an elastic tape and a construction stepper (optional - super glue). The wide elastic band that the author used to create the shelf could stretch to 200% of its original length, and, of course, was strong enough to hold the books a canopy. The key moment is to estimate how many books will beyou hang on the shelf and what width they will be. In fact, we will create personalized space for each book, taking into account its size and weight. To do this, select suitable "candidates" and attach them to the shelf, wrapped around a rubber band. Measurements of the author of the idea showed that the averagethe ideal width of the book is 2.5 cm, and a suitable length is 28 cm for hanging 12 books. Now that we know the average size of the tape, you can start attaching it to the board. Preliminarily, you can mark the attachment points. When you cut the elastic into parts, let's put a couple of centimeters on the allowance - to be more comfortable nailing with a stapler. Pinch the ends of the tape with a cigarette lighter. For each book in hardcover, you canattach two loops of rubber bands, and for small books in the paperback one loop is enough to prevent the book from compressing or deforming. In the end, this is what: Now you can try on books. It should be remembered that over time, under the weight of books, the elastic band can stretch. Then you can simply replace the ribbon with a new one. For extreme books in the row, mask the tape under the cover for the most effective optical illusion. The simplest thing left is to attach the shelf to the wall and wait for the surprised exclamations of the guests!
