Your Own Personal Bookman

London booksellers Any Amount of Books is selling something called The (Incredible) Bookman. It's designed by artist Kazmierz Szmauz, who, we're told, also designed CDMan, DVDMan and VideoMan. The "highly decorative piece of furniture as well as a sculpture" holds 100 books, is 6 feet high, 4 feet wide, and made of mahogany. For those of you who just have to have a (blockheaded) man-shaped bookshelf in your home, he can be yours for a mere $1700. Shipping extra, of course.

Oh, and there are two other models available (see below). BookMan #3 looks about ready to do a somersault, or perhaps move into a sun salutation yoga pose.

Thanks to Book Patrol for the lead.

Thanks for the heads up about the WC paper from Dick Blick! I appreciate that! And this Book Man is a hoot!
