Placing unique bookends on either end of a row of books can make a symbolic statement about your sense of style, your interests or your sense of fun, all while performing the task of protecting your books. Rather than buying a pair of decorative bookends that have been mass produced and seen elsewhere, you might choose to use bookends that have been created by an artist, giving them the added appeal of being unique. A pair of unique bookends can turn any bookshelf into an area of great interest.
The type of bookends that you use is going to be a matter of personal preference and may be related to the theme of the books that are being propped up. It might be possible to commission a specific type of bookend using materials that have always appealed to you. The standard wooden bookends can be fashioned into the most amazing of shapes if a talented wood-turner is given the right level of instructions.
Inspirations such as famous works of art, sculptures from ancient times, landmarks that have meant something to you can all be used to create your unique bookends. Perhaps you are interested in gothic times and would like to use that as a theme for the bookends that will provide a far greater display than you would otherwise achieve. Take a pair of bookends that have been made from marble or agate or fossil stone. The natural beauty of any of these products make each of them unique, although they may be cut into common shapes such as triangles, the striations and seams that run through them make them unique.
Some of the most impressive - not to mention highly collectable - bookends are available from some of the more famous pottery manufacturers.
