Don’t be fooled by the rather whimsical name of the Penguin Donkey Shelf, as their is a very interesting story behind it. The original shelf was design in 1939 exclusively to hold Penguin paperback books. Due to its innovative design, the bookshelf has now been immortalized in annals of design history and reproduced time and time again. Made from natural birch, the shelf is perfect to display books and magazines and can hold up to 80 paperback books, which is quite impressive. Measuring 60w x 42d x 43cmh, the Penguin Donkey Shelf can be ordered from twentytwentyone.com.
