The invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenberg in 1440 made books more common. The need for their storage also become more pronounced. The oldest shelves in existence are believed to be in the Bodleian Library at Oxford University, they have been in place since the end of the 16th century. What surprises me though is the fact that the initial designs made then have remained till today, and are used as a standard for the design of the modern bookcases.
An interlocking assembly is one of the best features of products from Way Basics. This type of design offers the user almost unlimited choice as to form and function. The less mechanically inclined will be happy to know that these products require a simple double stick tape to assemble without the hassle of tools. Users report that the shelving is quite basic and are easily assembled. For around fifty dollars, one can obtain the Modern Double Rectangle featuring dual shelves.
Way Basics are furniture manufacturers that design some very reasonably priced white bookcases. The eco-conscious will be glad to know that these shelves are built from recycled paperboard rather than plywood. When manufactured properly, paperboard is durable and best of all, is classified as sustainable. Another great feature is that they are often less than half the weight of their counterparts.
