Uncrate is not a paying advertiser here. Nobody is. I just like their stuff. Today's bookcase is a lovely and appetizingly asymetrical thing. However, when I imagined it in my living room, looking at the different books, I realized that I would be cranking my head from one side to the other like some yoga instructor.
Maybe there are folks who use conventional shelves and still stack their books willy-nilly, but for the most part, book manufacturers want to assure that you have a cramp in only one side of your neck. I'm just not sure if the Quad is making a fitness statement or an artistic one.
For $1800, I'll just take my books straight up, thanks.
