General Information

Inclined not to fall.

Upright books have a tendency to tip over, and stacks are likely to slide apart. Instead of holding books from the sides, the library proven method is to store or transport books on a tilted shelf, as any other book cart also demonstrates. Not seen so often in Europe, in the US the "desktop book shelf" is an ubiquitous piece of small furniture which utilizes the tilted shelf principle. They are big enough to accommodate frequently used books, reference books, notebooks or address books, which can be removed and replaced with ease. The little shelf is at home on the favorite reading places, on the desk or night table, and at a usable width of 38 cm, accommodates current as well as future reading matter.
