Caveat: one reviewer complains about a “high sheen plastic” that covers it.

I can understand why it would be laminated with clear plastic, to protect the artwork and make it easier to clean. Light switch plates encounter a lot of dirty hands.

It would be cool though if the plates were made using actual buckram book cloth, the kind that has an easy-to-keep-clean finish on it. (Described as “aqueous acrylic” on Wikipedia.)

That’s what we used to rebind heavily-used books that didn’t require an especially artistic binding when I worked for my university library’s conservation department. It’s a little garish looking compared to high quality leather-bound books, but it kept costs down for purely utilitarian bindings.

WTF, Franklin Library editions? Why not go all the way and use Reader’s Digest Condensed Books spines?

I’m not sure if I would put this on my wall, I don’t find this very pleasing for a wall mount.

It would be better if it had Asimov, Bradbury and Heinlein on it or even Howey!
