Back in December 2008, I lamented the fact that Restoration Hardware's typewriter bookends were no longer available. Well, now I'm pleased to see that they're back! Update on January 11, 2012: Sadly, they're no longer shown on the restoration Hardware web site.
But I'm also very taken with Restoration Hardware's vise bookends.
Of course, plenty of other places sell notable bookends. If you like the typewriter, maybe you'll also like these Quote-Unquote bookends.
Architectural Pottery makes these XOO bookends. [via EcoSalon]
Susan Bradley's London Transit bookends are a fun option. You can buy directly from her, or from the London Transport museum (bus and taxi). [via Retro To Go]
These iron fleur-de-lis bookends (available here and here) look quite nice. Update on Jan. 14, 2013: I'm no longer finding these bookends.
And finally, these Swirly Whirly bookends are available from Roussell Family Arts, over on Etsy. Update on Jan. 14, 2013: I'm no longer finding these bookends at the Roussell Family Arts Etsy shop.
