Physical books are rare these days. What more, the humble book light? However the bibliophile in me just cannot help but admire the beauty and uniqueness that is the Bowio book light.
Being the avid reader, I’ve used a few book lights myself. I use them when I want to read late into the night and not wanting to disturb the sleep of my significant other leaving the room lights on. The biggest problem for me has always been getting an even brightness across both pages of a book as I read. All my book lights consist of a light source that is concentrated at a single point. Having the brighter source and moving it further away from the book helps but that also creates a more disturbing glare for someone sleeping next to me.

The Bowio book light solves this problem by having multiple LED lights distributed across a band that runs above the book pages from end to end. Plus it has a simple method to securely mount to the book using magnetic clasps. Once mounted, you can flip though pages and even read upside down without worrying about it falling off. You can just close the book when you are done, leaving the Bowio still attached and that is fine.
The elegant looking strap that the LED lights are mounted on is made from top-grain cow leather. For vegans, there is also a choice of PU leather.
