As anyone who has worked over an altar, kitchen counter, or any other such surface craning their neck to look at their Book of Shadows or recipe book, or scrambling to scoop up the book before spill can reach it, can tell you, a book holder can be a very convenient thing. In this case, it is not only convenient but beautiful as well. Sculpted from wood, it portrays on its upper surface the sacred symbol of the Tree of Life, most commonly viewed as a symbol bridging the heavens and the earth with its far-reaching canopy and deep roots. This and its lower section is further decorated with intricate patterns of Celtic knots, carved in a manner that brings to life the beautiful grain of the wood.
Created so as to present a solid, seamless construction, this book holder folds out from a flat, easy-to-store pattern that measures 14 3/4" long to stand 8" high and 13" wide. What's more, the v-shaped design also helps you to protect the binding of books, helping to ensure that your favorite works will last well into the future.
