The book-lamp is made of white paper in which I cut slots to recall the texture created by the words in a text. The amount of pages is interchangeable and allows users to customize their own lamps. The light bulb has low power consumption, doesn't heat and avoids overheating the paper. The book shape associated the real light of the lamp with the light of reason that culture and knowledge (represented by the book) gives to people (the principle of the Enlightenment).
