Topple Bookshelf Concept Is As Unstable As the Dollar

Illustration for article titled Topple Bookshelf Concept Is As Unstable As the Dollar

Out of all the furniture we'd safely add the feature of "rocking" to, a bookshelf would be down near the bottom of the list next to ovens, refrigerators and ironing boards. Julian Appelius has the opposite idea, adding a five-degree tilt to the bottom of this Topple bookshelf, which supposedly still keeps books upright as long as you have enough of them to fill a row. Still, the looming threat of being crushed by old copies of National Geographics and Playboys puts us on edge (we always pictured being tickled to death, naked, by a clown).

If P.T. Barnum and Tim Burton furnished a kid's room, what would they put in it? Looks like I finally got my answer.

Tickled to death. Naked. By a clown? Thanks giz, you have totally ruined the circus fetish for me.
