We love a beautiful book cover, but our conventional shelves are of little assistance in showing off our favorites. Enter designer Stephen Bretland, who created Picturebook, a simple wooden frame for holding and displaying a favorite book. It came to be after Bretland read a newspaper tribute to the work of graphic designer Germano Facetti, who helped to revolutionize book design in his post as art director at Penguin Books. Bretland began collecting Penguin titles with Facetti-designed covers (rarely paying more than a couple of dollars for each one). "A couple of months later I had 50 to 100 paperbacks with beautiful covers and no way to display them," he explains. "So I designed this product." Picturebook, which retails for around $20, is also open on the sides, adds Bretland, "so you can still read [the book] or swap it for another."
