My words, thoughts and photos from a Swedish perspective


This is not what you may think at first sight. These are book-ends, made of concrete by a person I know (we happen to be colleagues). Put one of these in your bookshelf and the bookshelf will stay organized and you won’t hear that bum-ping noice from falling books again.

I thought they were unusual and a bit fun too, so I asked if could take a couple of photos of them and she didn’t object to it so here they are. I’ve said it before and I say it again “Concrete can be beautiful sometimes”.

    Lynn: You are right, concrete is a very versatile material but it is not marketed as such in Sweden so people think of it only as construction material for houses and bridges.

  3. Okay…. LOL… This certainly made me laugh, and by the way, great detail in black&white. These would make very interesting bookends and make conversation. 🙂

    Hi Anna. Thank you for the comment. Making other people laugh is a good thing and yes, they would definitely make very interesting bookends and conversation pieces at the same time. 🙂
