Shoulder to Shoulder is a convenient storage, display, classification and transportation system for books.Shifting a large book collection is no easy task. Shoulder to Shoulder is a storage system that can make the moving procedure much easier. It also serves as a bookshelf. Each unit in the system is made from bent steel wire and can hold five-to-eight books. The units can be used separately or assembled into a large bookcase. The rails serve as supports and handles. The loops function as connection points between units and can also be used to separate the books.
