Book & Hero Saves Your Favorite Volumes From Imminent Fall


Got a stack of books, no proper bookshelf to keep them in? Dispatch this Book & Hero to the rescue and watch all your worries disappear.

Created by Israel outfit, Artori Design, it’s a single bookend that makes it look like a flying caped superhero is holding your books up, keeping them from crashing tragically down to the ground. He does this while suspended in mid-air, too, creating for a gorgeous effect that’s bound to make any visitor do a double-take.


Book & Hero is a single bookend (it’s meant to function solo, rather than as part of a pair) that’s designed to hold books at a slight angle pushing towards it, while a flying superhero pushes it with both hands towards the opposite direction to keep everything upright. It achieves the effect by using a metal fixture that slips on the inside cover of the book at the end, with the magnetic superhero simply snapping into place once everything is set up. The base of the bookend measures 7.9 inches long and 4.7 inches wide, so it should fit around half a dozen books, depending on how thick they are.


Want to maximize the effect? Place this thing near the edge of a table, so it looks like the superhero, who’s obviously benefited from some of that super-shrinking Ant-Man technology, is keeping them from experiencing an unfortunate accident.

Available now, Book & Hero is priced at $25.

    This is so neat! But honestly looking at the pictures of how it’s made and used, I still don’t understand how it equates to being so invisible in the first image. I really like the theme and concept though, but considering it’s size and what it does, I still think it’s a little pricey. I hope they come out with more themed ones like Family Guy for example, and mix the colors up a little bit that would be cool. Does this bend to make a better fit? How much weight worth of books can it actually hold? It looks a little thin, so I would hope they provide a good warranty and I’d have to look at some demonstration videos before investing money into this considering it’s 25 bucks.
