Inverted Bookshelf

Make this invisible bookshelf and hang your books in the air!
I’ve already dealt with a Conceal Bookshelf project which was an innovative solution to keep my guests stunned. I’m still a great enthusiast of visual illusion used in home design. One day I will change the whole apartment decor to resemble ‘Alice in Wonderland’ surrounding.

Therefore, when I saw an Inverted Bookshelf on Instructables for the first time, I couldn’t stop smiling at the ingenuity behind the product. I thought the author of the concept had eliminated the gravity, as the books just seemed to be floating in the air without any support from below. This project has blown me away.

What’s your opinion of the idea? Do you like being deceived by visual illusions? Grasp the idea share some magic with us on our fan page.

    If I do this I will make is so the books are right-side-up to read the titles as they are defying gravity under the shelf. Fun idea.
