Jen Young pointed the way to Jim Rosenau\'s really neat project site, where he has turned his near-religious relationship to books into artful furniture.
Inspired by Nicholson Baker’s essay, “Lumber”, about how the term once applied to more than just wood, he found a way to turn books into lumber, and create Two-Bracket Shelves, Bookcases, One-Bracket Shelves, and Other Neat Stuff.
