Finally (sort of), these humble little books have a home of their own:
The Penguin Donkey bookcase was designed in 1939 specifically to hold Penguin books -- up to 80 of them, to be precise -- and has been resurrected by design house twentytwentyone. If you're a vintage nut like me, you're already trying to rationalize the £451.00 price tag. Ouch!
[Thanks to design*sponge for the link.]
*Speaking of Penguin, BoingBoing recently posted that Amazon is selling the complete Penguin Classics Library (1,082 titles in total) for just under eight grand. That's some serious dimp. But now the link from BoingBoing to the specific info on Amazon doesn't work. Does anyone know anything about this? Not that I have that kind of coin, but I like to keep my facts straight.
ETA: Here is the correct Amazon link. Thanks, Ms Molly!
