A bookcase with four sliding tabs (vertical panels) which allows the user to organize books in various ways. By repositioning tabs, zones for different types of books can be created. At the same time, it will naturally create various looks depending on the placement you choose.

The PENGUIN LIBRARY wallpaper is a collage of front covers of those iconic early paperbacks from this famous publishing house and includes Ariel, the very first Penguin paperback published in 1935. The book covers were chosen for their diversity of colour and to illustrate the breadth of Penguin’s publishing backlist. Great care was taken in the design to truly represent the original paperbacks in all their, sometimes well-read and a little worn, glory. The resulting PENGUIN LIBRARY wallpaper is a glorious colourful ‘conversational piece’ which we hope will be received with as much affection as the books themselves.

"A decent library can mark a hotel out from its competitors, give it a nicely intellectual feel, and supply guests with another reason to stay in and buy a drink. It is perhaps a shame when hotels decide that a task as fun and indeed personal as choosing their libraries' contents should not be done in-house by someone familiar with the locale. But swankier operations may be nervous about choosing inappropriately and tainting their brand, and anyway they may not have a bookworm on staff. Thus it becomes sensible to invest a bit of money—up to $30,000 in some cases—to ensure a bit of professional nous is applied to the selection. Those hotels that use the Ultimate Library's services do not necessarily let Mr Blackwell’s team get on with the job unimpeded. “With one hotel,” he says, “we had to come up with 150 books and justify each one.” The Economist
