In this series, I have explored different interesting geometric forms of book lights including a triangular book light, a rectangular book light and a bookmark book light.

type i: corner book light prototype development

subtractive process

Starting with a triangular solid corner piece that fits the corner of any book.

The surface of the longer edge is removed to help insert it in the corner of a book.

One of the shorter edges is removed in order for the corner piece to move along the length of the book.

A small incline in the top flap of the corner piece ensures a better light distribution across the page.

final prototype - corner booklight 

A stylish triangular booklight that fits the corner of any book.

 
 
 

 
 

type ii: longitudinal edge light design

This rectangular book light can be placed along the edges of a book light and can be slid up and down along the edge.

Can be fit along the longer edge of a book. It has a good light spread that illuminates the entire page of a book.

type iii: bookmark booklight

 

This booklight is shaped like a bookmark with a long stem. It can easily be inserted between the pages of a book.
