Combining ingenious construction and discreet dimensions, our sleek-topped tripod table draws inspiration from wide-ranging sources—drafting tables, machine-age gadgetry, early 20th century furnishings—so not surprising its eclectic adaptability (including adjustable height), deftly serving as end, side or night table. Cast iron legs, functional crank, elm top. Some assembly required.
JFIC/YA The Rithmatist (The Rithmatist, #1), 2013. As the son of a lowly chalkmaker at Armedius Academy, Joel can only watch as Rithmatist students learn the magical art that he would do anything to practice. Then students start disappearing—kidnapped from their rooms at night, leaving trails of blood. Assigned to help the professor who is investigating the crimes, Joel and his friend Melody find themselves on the trail of an unexpected discovery—one that will change their world forever.
