Boutique lamp makers Typewriter Boneyard recently released the Book Lamp, a hardcover book with a built-in switch and bulb. But here's the thing: it costs $140. I have a feeling you wonderful fixers can put together a book lamp that looks just as good for a fraction of the price. Think you got what it takes?

And seeing how this it There, I Fixed It, points will also be given to most kludged-together design. LET'S DO THIS

From the submitter:

It has a story. Power went out, my father starts building this with tape, a lamp and a little camping chair and makes this awesome light. Guess what? Power came back, EPIC FAIL.

Well Freaking Done!

Last week I issued a challenge to design a book lamp like boutique ones made by Typewriter Boneyard but for a fraction of the cost. Lo and behold, user Richard made a beauty. Using three used books and light fitting parts found at a DIY store, he built this model with two hours of spare time and less than £15. A tip of the hat to you sir for putting together such an impressive (and functioning) model.
