This system enables several compositions. The stability is given by the angle of the snap against the gravitational pull. It was designed to be completely cut into a single FSC plywood panel, for maximum use of the material. The assemblage is all done through the joints. No need for nails, screws, glue.

Ein Messestand stiftet auf der Leipziger Buchmesse zum lesen an. Die Gestalter Johannes Albert und Helmut Stabe haben für den Mitteldeutschen Verlag eine Messepräsentation entworfen, die mit dem Bleistift als Werbepräsent spielt, welches zugleich als wesentlicher Bestandteil des Standes in Erscheinung tritt. Messebesucher können sich nun zwischen der Entnahme eines Bleistiftes jedoch damit dem damit verbundenen Abbau des Standes entscheiden.
Das einfache und dennoch vielseitige Schreibgerät wird zum dreidimensionalen Buchdisplay und Schriftzug. Zu guter Letzt spielen Bleistifte sogar eine konstruktive Rolle: als Verbindungselement halten 315 Bleistifte acht Lochplatten passgenau zusammen.

A Bookcase, set in a public setting (sort of a park in this case) accessible at all time for all. No rules. A person may choose a book, take it home to read and bring it back... or keep it... or exchange it for one of their own books.
The first Public Bookcase was presented 2003.
All of them are organised and taken care for by a citizen initiative - Bürgerstiftung Bonn. Expenses are mostly met with the help of donations and volunteers.
Since October 2005 there is a second one at the Rhine riverside.
2006 - a small pavilion is turned into an open book stop following the same concept.
November 2008 - a third Open Bookcase
Just a week later - a fourth Open Bookcase
11. September 2009 - the newest (fifth!) Open Bookcase
Location: Bonn, Germany

Everyone has the right to build and cherish a private library.(lots more photos here)
With this in mind, we present The Book Bike: a custom-built tricycle stocked with 200 lbs of free books. Since July of 2008, The Book Bike has been responsible for placing over 3,000 new and used books into peoples’ hands. In spring and summer, you’ll find The Book Bike at Chicago public parks on the weekends; anyone who wants a book is invited to take something home to read.
Book Bike 2.0
In the summer of 2010, The Book Bike puts a spotlight on independent publishers: from hand-crafted zines to literary magazines and books, The Book Bike is a unique resource of the global independent literary scene.
With your help, all books on The Book Bike will be purchased from independent bookstores and indie press. Not only will the books continue to be given away from The Book Bike for anyone and everyone to enjoy, but every book and will have been paid for, thus directly supporting independent booksellers while keeping with the mission of free books for all.
