Book vendor

The Monkey's Paw rethinks discount bins.
12 11 21 biblio mat

Vending machines are having a heyday, dispensing everything from break-resistant plates, talking coffee and bicycles. But we especially love this book vending machine by Toronto used book store The Monkey’s Paw and Craig Small. The Biblio-Mat dispenses a mystery book for a few coins. It hums and dings and whirls, and makes buying discount books fun. Here’s a challenge for someone: actually collect (and read) all 112 million titles.
