The Barristers Block label was created in 2004 by Jan Siemelink-Allen collectively with her two sons James and Lachlan, and her husband Evert-Jan. When a barrister changed chambers every single shelf could be moved separately without removing its contents. Some bookcases are created for heavy books with glass fronts to shield the books from dust. This variety of bookcase can be a freestanding unit or a framed piece to hang on the wall. These are good bookcases to hold products that want protection books or treasures.
