We all need a hero in our life. For textbooks, it’s a smart bookend shelf that makes the books look like being “saved” by a hero. Book & Hero is a brilliant bookend that will give a smile to anyone who will see it. A magnet is utilized to hold the superhero in the air, providing the sense of him ‘saving’ the textbooks from an impending fall. Each bookend gives the look that a library of books is being kept straight or in midair by a little, yet extremely powerful, Superman-like figure. These smart illusions, made out of solid magnets, include a magnetized shape of a caped crusader.
