Books first appeared in the world as scrolls. These scrolls were usually inscribed by hand and so their production was quite costly. Religious institutions, libraries and ancient universities prized the books highly. These necessitated the need for specialized containers or boxes which were easily accessible for easy referencing. Initially the shelved containers were much deeper and separated into many compartments for easier access. The shelving was usually hidden away in closets that blended with the home decor or in private study rooms.
A cube bookcase has simple straight square shelving. These are very popular since they are the basic style of bookcases. These bookcases have a hip modern look with clean, smooth lines. Cube bookcases are general modular meaning they can be stacked upward or outward and can even hang up on the wall. This style of bookcase is perfect for someone who has limited space and lots of books
A wall of books can become an oversized Advent Calendar, filled with small gifts to be opened each day. Again, this is easy with a cube-type bookcase, as baskets filled with goodies can be placed in the cubes; another idea is to just wrap gifts and set them in the spaces, which is especially nice for homes with limited floor space.
