From bridges to bicycles, we’ve found the best collection of bookends ever

There’s no excuse in the world for boring bookends. And this shop is the end-all, be-all of bookends, with everything from animals to plants to robots.

Design Atelier Article is a Ukrainian artisan duo that creates super cool minimalist bookends in laser-cut steel with vibrant, powder-coated finishes. They’re seriously awesome.

You’ll find bears, horses, cats, keys, pears, and tons of the most popular motifs are just waiting to sit on your bookshelf–or your children’s, of course. Some of them are even on sale, including those cool octopus tentacles–you’ll just have to check them all out and squeal. 

The artists are located in the Ukraine, so shipping will cost more and take longer than you’re accustomed to. But bookends, like books, are forever. –Delilah
