Literature heavyweights

They look like the kind of leather-bound books you'd find in a room smelling of rich mahogany, but these chunky classics are actually salvaged bricks.

The faux literature is the work of Melbourne guy Daryl Fitzgerald, who grabs second-hand bricks and stencils the well-worn units into Light Reading. They make great bookends for unread biographies and look awesome on a dusty mantelpiece.

You'll find everything from To Kill a Mockingbird to Wind in the Willows at these Aussie stockists, which will impress both literary lovers and those not so, well, bookish.
