Often the most simple looking designs are actually the most thought-out. An example is our #8110 clear acrylic book stand.
This heavy gauge acrylic table-top display is for a single book title. The book rests on the 2-1/2" deep base and the 8" angled back holds it upright. This simple design is sturdy and shows each book upright and face-out with the proper support for the spine.
It works great for any size book including art volumes and children's' books because books can extend beyond the top and sides significantly and still be supported by the stand.
These single book easels are a favorite of libraries and bookstores for their sturdiness and neutral design which blends in with any kind of decor.
