There are slanted bookshelves, floating bookshelves, and rainbow bookshelves, then there are ways to take even the most mundane bookshelves to the next level, and let me tell you, a magical 3-D bookshelf diorama is exactly that.
Monde, a Japanese designer from Tokyo, created said bookends for a project that BoredPanda d was first introduced at Design Festa, an international art event in Tokyo, where everyone fell in love with the creations. Each bookend, the site wrote, "detailed replicas of the winding, narrow back alleys of Japan."
Depending on which diorama you are lucky enough to look into, you will find an arrangement of plants and lights made from different materials, which actually create the illusion of peering down a dimly lit Japanese alleyway from your home.
"I thought that it would be interesting if I made a back street in the gap between bookshelves," the artist told Buzzfeed News Japan, and Monde certainly wasn't wrong. Look at how incredible these are!
Though there isn't yet a shop for you to purchase your own, BoredPanda does give us hope. Monde is, in fact, working to fulfill orders via direct message, hopefully for people overseas as well. Hey, whatever business method works, right?! But don't worry, you'll be just one of his now 15,600 followers—so, he does this a lot...clearly.
