The Penguin Bookcase

This old bookcase was built by my dad when he owned a bookshop in Weston-super-Mare in the 1960’s.  The shelves are made of glass.  It’s REALLY heavy and I had to use some very long screws and make a great deal of noise putting it up.

I thought it would be good to restore it to it’s former glory and use it to display our Penguin books….
