Re: [BKARTS] Book Display Stands



Laura

Have you considered, rather than structured display stands, using book bean
bags? - just an oblong fabric case roughly the size of the books you intend
to display, and filled with styrofoam beads.
They are easy to make, and very flexible to use, with the bag being plumped
up in different ways depending on which book you are displaying and how you
want it to sit.
If made out of a suitable fabric, than can form a fine background on which
to display books and are light and easy to transport.

Cheers
Helen
