The light is a repurposed combination of a couple of different pieces.

Laura Gaskill added this to Easy Green: 10 Tiny Homes That Live Large
Tip 3: Create "moments" of spaciousness.Just because (or especially because) you are working with a small space doesn't mean you can't have a room that feels wide open. Consider knocking out a wall or two in the main living space to allow room to breathe.
I'm a book reviewer, the friend of many authors and a committed book buyer, so there is a constant stream of books into the house, but this is what I ask myself to get some of them back out: Do I love it? Will I read it again?That's it. Those two questions alone have enabled me to keep from holding onto more books than I care to maintain and leave room for those I still wish to replace. I'm having fun rebuilding my library slowly as I remember the books I miss and want to read it again.
Tiffany Carboni added this to Over-the-Door Shelves Offer Sneaky Storage
Multiple shelves provide more space for smaller collectibles. If you have the space for two or more shelves above a door frame, make sure they fit your collection. Books, for example, need about 10 inches of shelf height to stand upright.

Somehow, filling the whole wall makes the books appear less like more stuff in the room, and more like an actually part of the room.
