A pop-up book that's also a lamp

The Book of Lights opens up to reveal an LED-powered lamp.

Ohhhh... Charles & Marie

There are a lot of things that have racked up frequent flier miles on Crave. Oddly shaped USB drives , awe-inducing Guitar Hero videos, and Swarovsky-covered crap are all par for the course on the average day.

As far as I know, though, this is the first pop-up book we've seen that is also a fully operational lamp. And that's worth blogging about.

When opened, the Book of Lights creates an LED-powered pop-up lamp.

Available in traditional lampshade and Parisian streetlamp versions, it's available for preorder for $95 on Charles & Marie.

The big, linen-bound book is available only in hardcover. It's a quick read, because it contains no words. But if it did have words in it, it would be its own reading light.

There is no audiobook version or paperback version of the Book of Lights, but you can create your own Book of Lights audiobook by recording yourself reading this sentence: "I am a pop-up lamp."
