Umbra Conceal Book Shelf
For a fresh, ultra-minimal look, the Conceal bookshelf from Umbra mounts to the wall and becomes invisible behind a stack of books, giving the books the appearance of floating in mid-air.
Attach the sturdy, L-shaped steel Conceal Shelf to the wall with the included mounting hardware.
Place the first book so that the shelf ledge is between the pages and the back cover, using the two hooks underneath to hold the back cover in place.
Stack additional books on top of the first book until the Conceal Shelf is hidden from view. This gives the stack of books a floating appearance.
Available in two sizes, the Large Shelf holds up to 20 pounds of medium to large books; the Small Shelf holds up to 15 pounds of small to medium books.
The Conceal Shelf, designed by Miron Lior, is a winner of the annual Umbra-Pratt Institute Design Competition. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of this product are donated to the Pratt Institute School of Design in New York City.
Each year, students of the Pratt Institute's Industrial Design program are invited to submit their designs to a panel of judges, who award the products that best reflect the Umbra design sensibility and incorporate originality, wit and manufacture-ability.
Winning designs are considered for manufacture and distribution by Umbra. If the design is put into production, the student and the Pratt Institute receive a portion of the proceeds from the product's sales.
“Design is at the center of our business at Umbra. We rely on bright new designers to fuel our creative growth. We are honored to be able to work with distinguished design schools like Pratt and talented new design graduates.” -- Paul Rowan, Co-Founder, Umbra
For an ultra-minimal look, the Conceal bookshelf from Umbra mounts to the wall and becomes invisible behind a stack of books, giving the books the appearance of floating in mid-air. Attach the sturdy, L-shaped shelf to the wall with the included mounting hardware and slide one book onto the ledge so that the ledge is sandwiched between the book's cover and pages. Secure the cover in place using the integrated clips beneath the ledge. Stack up to 15-pound (or 8-inch) of medium to large books on top of the first book until the shelf is obscured from view. Conceal is constructed of strong, powder-coated steel and is available in two finishes. This model measures 5-1/2 by 7 by 6-1/2-inch. Also available is a smaller size for small books and a wider model that holds two stacks side by side. The patented design by Miron Lior is the winner of many design awards including the Umbra Pratt Design Competition. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this item is donated to the Pratt Institute School of Art and Design. Designed by Miron Lior for Umbra- original, modern, casual, functional and affordable design for the home.

Best of luck! Hope this helped.
These come in silver or white, and there is a small size and a large. I would use the large one for big hardback books or coffee table books, and the small one for paperbacks or small-to-medium hardbacks.
I looked at a lot of reviews to figure out the best hanging/invisible shelf and I am glad I found this, my only concern was how fragile they were going to be while taking the books on and off the shelf. Thankfully the shelf holds up well to movement, the bottom book stays where it is supposed to when removing books. You have to be conscious of the fact that the books under the one you're taking can't stray to fall from the wall obviously, that will cause the books to tumble but it's never happened to me.
Another concern is how many books it can hold, i mean a shelf that holds 3 books is pretty worthless to me. These shelves can hold 6, 7 or 8 normal hard covered books, anymore and it gets dicey. That's more than enough though since I bought 6 of them and staggered them about the place. It's a nice sturdy little shelf that will bring you compliments all day due to its floating invisibly on your wall. You can't see it at all once the books are on it.. I am ordering more and will look at the other kinds of shelves from Umbra. I think they have a double shelf as well. Stop thinking, buy this shelf and be done with it, you'll be happy you did!
I am happy to have discovered them by doing a search on "floating shelving" on Amazon. I considered other floating shelving systems as well, but these were perfect for the job..
