Hide your embarrassing literature
Illustrator Isabel Greenberg's series of concertina Fold Out-Fold Up products are designed to cover kitchen- or bookshelf shame...
"If you have an embarrassing bookcase with lots of Mills and Boon or the Twilight books or something, you fold out my book shelf cover and put it in front!" says Greenberg on her website. "The kitchen one [below] has lots of foodie feastables and you can pop it over your kitchen shelf when you have nothing but pot noodles and stale crackers." Greenberg's fake library includes such tomes as Toilet: Faeces in Art and Design and Granny Chic, and also reveals a penchant for studies on cake art.
Check out more of Greenberg's work on her website, complete with url inspired by the 'classic' dad joke, isabelnecessary.com.
Very, very Le Gun. But sweet.
Haha very good idea man..!!
LOVE it :D
Love this idea!
The wealthy used to commission fake bookshelves to convince visitors they were literate. I can't help feeling Isabel's cover up is little more impressive than the 'embarrassing' items it's designed to hide. What about putting up Kant's Critique of Pure Reason or Proust's Remembrance of Things Past? Or is that trying a little too hard? Nice idea though.
The idea is certainly nice and fun, but the graphics? is a beautiful design? I think not.
I find this concept cheap and superficial. If you want people to think you read good books... then go out and find some. Either have a little pride in yourself, or change.
