The Bookshelf That Becomes Your Coffin (via @bookriot)

It's halloween! A Dutch funeral products company designed a coffin that doubles as a bookshelf while you're still alive:

‘Death has to be understood, just like birth, as an important part of life,’ says Rademaker. ‘I made the coffin because it must become easier to discuss death and integrate it with life. Death does not come after life, death belongs to life. You should be able to discuss death in an unforced, natural way, just as you talk to people about expecting a baby, bringing up children, or your relationships.’
