For the anon who asked me how the floating shelves work.

Can you see how there’re two little hooks underneath the shelf? They hold the back cover of the book and that part of the shelf goes inside the book.

Hope this helped :)

In the Garden at Villiers-le-Bel (1889). Frederick Childe Hassam (American, 1859-1935). Oil on canvas.
It is scenes of women and flower gardens that are a genre for which Hassam is particularly recognized and which comprise the subject of some of his most memorable images. In the garden at Villiers-le-Bel, pots of brilliant flowers take center stage. The flowers in small pots await planting while the lady (perhaps Hassam’s wife) reads in comfort.
