Wooden Dioramas Bring the Feel of Tokyo Alleys Into Your Bookshelf

These unique bookends bring the feel of a Japanese back alley into your home.
A Tokyo-based, Japanese designer named monde has created by hand these wood inserts that reveal incredible miniature scene of the alleyways of Tokyo.

The unique bookends were on display at Design Festa, which is a Tokyo-based arts and craft event.
About the enthusiastic reception his project is receiving, monde said to BuzzFeed Japan “It was the first time that the work had echoed so far.

If you’re interested in purchasing the alley-inspired items, monde is taking orders for customers who would like their own “back alley bookshelf”, DM on Twitter.
