This vintage book stack has been upcycled into a perfect reading light for any age! The book is aged beautifully, and the art / style on the cover and binding is beautiful. Looks great on any bedside table, coffee table, shelf, desk etc...

The socket takes candelabra sized bulbs, and is controlled by a toggle switch. As always, the bottom of the lamp is flat so it can be stacked with friends.

Book Featured: "War and Civilization" by Arnold J. Toynbee, 1950 and "The Wall Between Us" by Betty King and Lorraine Juliana, 1964.

**All components used to make this lamp are UL Listed, even though this unique piece is not UL Listed.
