Ray Bradbury’s home was demolished earlier this year, but the home will live on in a very fitting manner: parts of his house were turned into bookends and sold to support Center for Ray Bradbury Studies at Indiana University.

Sadly, the bookends have since sold out - only 451 were made. Bradbury’s home was torn down by The Reuse People, who specialize in salvaging building materials from homes in order to reuse them.

A portion of the sale proceeds will be donated to the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies at Indiana University to help fund the re-creation of Bradbury’s home office, a major milestone in the Center’s ongoing efforts to preserve his works and legacy.

While you can’t buy them now, it is nice knowing that some part of Bradbury’s home will live on in an exceedingly nice way.
