Special acrylic slide in slide out wall display case
Make no mistake, Born to Run Revisited is a big book, and we wanted to give you some different display options. Of course you can put it on your coffee table or (big) bookshelf, but we felt it deserved something a bit special. At the design stage of the book/slipcase we took a conscious decision to keep the cover free of text, so that nothing detracts from the power of the chosen front and back cover images. That notion gave rise to the idea of this display unit – because it means you can, should you choose to, display your book just like a piece of art on the wall – which is what it is, after all.
Constructed from 5mm clear acrylic, this is a solid, elegant and practical way to display your book on your wall in its slipcase. It measures 18.5 inches (w) x 25 inches (h) x 1.5 inches (d). That’s approximately 47cm x 64cm x 4cm.
It is open sided on the left and right, allowing you to slide your book (and please read ‘book’ as ‘book and slipcase’ here) in and out whenever you want to look at the contents. You also have the flexibility to show the front or the back of the book and flip it over if you feel like a change of view.
It has curved edges, and a split baton hanging system on the reverse. Special acrylic ‘feet’ at the bottom ensure that it hangs parallel to the wall.
It is a nice, simple, solid piece of work. The cost is GBP 350 + shipping.
