Bookfellow – Spalted Tamarind
The individual Bookfellow you receive may not be the one represented in the photo.
Originally designed to be a simple, handsome, yet highly functional book weight, the Bookfellow not only checks those boxes but brings added functionality to your desk. A companion book weight and book rest, the Bookfellow weight will hold those pesky pages down while also propping that tome up to a more comfortable reading position.
The weight includes a solid bar of brass or copper and weighs in at right around a pound. The bottom side is concave to better span the curve of the pages and includes anti-slip pads on the ends that are grippy enough to keep things in place but not so grippy as to harm the pages.
The rest can be positioned to raise your book either 1.25" or 2.25" and has felt pads on the bottom. When not in use the weight nests in the rest and makes for an attractive desk piece.
Keep in mind that natural metals will tarnish in time and lose their brightness. Periodic cleaning with a high quality metal cleaner is recommended if the brighter finish is desired.
