This Vintage-Looking Vending Machine Dispenses Rare Books For Just $2

“A Toronto bookstore has come up with a creative way to add value to old, discount books that otherwise may clutter its storage: an antique-seeming “book dispenser” that randomly spits out old books for $2 a pop. The Biblio-Mat combines the charm of a gumball machine with the surprise element of a raffle. The machine jumps to life once money’s inserted. With a bit of overt drama–cranking and whirring and ringing that invoke old machinery–the dispenser then releases a used title from its stock, dropping it into a slot for a happy reader to walk away with.”
