Books you can’t reach? You likely need an 1890′s French staircase to get them. Cast iron with wrought iron ballistrades, brass finishing and stained oak steps. Better access to those first editions. Top-shelf gives you something to lean on while perusing, and a place to rest your drink. Your guess is as good as ours on how much it weighs. Shipping not included in the pricetag . . . $35,000. BUY

Mike Simonian and Maaike Evers have designed something fairly clever. “Juxtaposed: Religion” is a bookshelf that places the seven major religious texts all on the same level – literally. The The bookshelf is designed so that each book reaches the same height. Even more interesting is that Mike’s portfolio includes helping to design the X-Box 360. Somehow, we think there are many who will find similarities in the two. $2,500 (Books included). BUY

So to respond to our own post of a $4,600 book – we are countering it with the opposite. Books by the yard are used by interior designers to quickly furnish that new library you want. Choose based on content, age, color or whatever fits your style. Strand Bookstore has a menu of ways to order by the foot. Quickly fill your home office with the greatest classics, or match an entire wall to the painting above the fireplace. The look of age….by tomorrow. Pictured (per foot) – $75, $30, $400 respectively.

Spice up your bedside table or library with books in first edition. Pictured first edition of “The Great Gatsby,” (from which Clipspringer partially derives its name), is found at Manhattan Rare Books. Alibris also has a wide selection. Prices can obviously run the gamut – this one being $4,600.

Stack your books in that “floating way” with Uma’s Invisible Floating Bookshelf. The shelf can be formed from any book available, and used as any kind of shelf. Put a lamp on it as a clever bedside table, or use a cookbook and stack more on in the kitchen. Design possibilities here are endless. Only $14.50
