Buried in Books

Who says you can’t take it with you? Well, you might have to leave your books behind, but at least you no longer need to be separated from your bookshelves, thanks to William Warren’s “Shelves For Life.”

The shelves are meant to last a lifetime. But they don’t stop there. They keep on going right with you on that final chthonian journey. The shelves are made to your own measurements, and they convert to a coffin upon your demise.
