451 Sets of Bookends Made from Ray Bradbury’s Former Home


The bookends, which cost $88.50 per set, have already sold out (and the two sets that made their way to eBay as of this writing sold for $275 and $300).

Architect Thom Mayne and his wife purchased the house and received a permit to tear it down early this year.

Part of the proceeds from sale of the bookends went to the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies at Indiana University.
