Your mailman is going to wish they didn't skip arm day when it comes time to deliver these cast iron bookends from Japanese designer Rikucho Ogasawara. We could talk about the Ogasawara's unique ability to apply modern design to such a traditional production process, but here's what you really want to know. Whichever super impressive books you like to display, but maybe haven't actually read...these bookends will hold them up and make sure visitors to your home notice them and assume you read them. These horn inspired bookends are sold as a pair, and have become an iconic design of master craftsman Rikuchou Ogasawara. Made with traditional techniques from the Iwate region of Japan, the cast iron is modern and classic at the same time. An appropriately understated yet distinct design to hold up your beloved books - place on your shelf or right on your desk as a visual centerpiece. Hand-made cast iron may show slight variation.
