Curated Bookshelf

"5,084,000,000 people 5,360 pages 3,700 years 243 countries 7 books 1 shelf." San Francisco designers Mike and Maaike have created JUXTAPOSED:Religion the first in a series of Juxtaposed curated bookshelves for blankblank. “For the first time, the world’s most influential religious texts are brought together and presented on the same level, their coexistence acknowledged and celebrated.”. The shelf is made of reclaimed hardwood and is offered in a limited edition of 50."

I don't care much for religious concepts but I do like the idea of a curated bookshelf and displaying books as art.
