BOOK DISPLAY & SUPPORT SYSTEM

Book Support System designed by Christopher Clarkson to cater for books with a wide variety of structural variations. The system is used in institutions throughout the world. The book support is built up from lightweight units of synthetic foam. Synthetic foam allows a book’s uneven board surfaces, even with bosses and side- pins, to be equally supported over their entire exterior surface.

The particular density of foam was chosen for the important non-slip characteristic required and the grey colour was found preferable for a library environment. The concept of related units has dictated the use of generalised angles and dimensions in the design. Simplicity and ease of storage (impossible to achieve with combined tilt-and-wedge designs) are special features of the style.

 

The units consist of three basic shapes in various format sizes Large, Medium & Small in the following dimensions:

500 mm

The larger wedges can also be used by themselves to display single-sheet items at a reasonable reading angle.
