The Perfect Place for Your Favorite Book: The Newton Shelf

Studio Ve deigned the Newton Shelf to give your favorite tome a place of its own. The book isn't displayed on the shelf, but instead becomes part of it, elevating it to displayable object status. The design allows you to place and remove the book whenever you like—so don't worry, you'll be able to read it for the twenty-somethingth time whenever the mood strikes.

I would love to see this design done in a way that would let you display a small stack of books, like a series or collection.
