shelves in a comic

Place many small shelves together to make some of the shelves into bookends, and create tiny and tantalising spaces just waiting for something to be placed on them.
Wrapping those shelves in a large, flexible silhouette turned them into a speech bubble, the kind that appears by a manga character’s head as he imagines something.
Sheets of glass with a satin-finished front and coated back give the shelves the transparency and softness of a speech bubble floating in mid-air. Shelves that seem synchronised with the mind of their owner, once loaded with books and objects.
