Bottoms Up is the perfect bookshelf for people on the move.

The bookshelf consists of two sheets of plywood with the same rectangular holes cut out for the insertion of a standard cardboard box.

The boxes are fitted into the plywood panels and books arranged within the boxes. When you next change house, simply close the cardboard boxes and leave. If a box is damaged in the move, just celebrate with another dozen at your next house-warming party and the bookshelf is back in action!
