How To: Make a Reading Lamp from a Recycled Book

Steve Hoefer came up with this DIY, literal take on the book light. "Friends have regularly recommended books as being particularly illuminating, but I admit that after opening them I was as in the dark as ever. Since I’m not one to let a good metaphor go unmolested (and because design schools seem to constantly create designers who’s job it is to make ugly lamps) I made this."   Check out the video of it being assembled, then head to Grathio for the full instructions.

This is the greatest reading light I've seen. Can't wait to make one for my Mom and wife.
