Toronto, Canada-based  second-hand bookshop  The Monkey’s Paw  created a vending machine that gives customers an interesting way to get new books.    Built by  designer  Craig Small  and the store’s owner Stephen Fowler, the ‘Biblio-Mat’ is an old metal locker that dispenses random, used tomes at $2 each.    When customers  put the coins in, books that vary in sizes and titles get whirred out.    The Biblio-Mat was  conceived as “an artful alternative to the ubiquitous and often ignored discount sidewalk bin”, Small wrote in the video’s description.
