This into That... more shelves made from books.

Tobin alerts me to his old co-worker who makes bookshelves out of books (also mentioned earlier in this post).

Look at how beautifully witty they can be:

Buried alive... hah! Do check the website out. I found the process of "harvesting" the books for the shelves particularly interesting.

  1. Hi Ted,

    Nice to know another biblioholic, who also writes.

    Personally, I feel uneasy about using books as bookshelves.

    Maybe it is ok for a work of art..

  2. Hello! Welcome to the blog!

    A fellow biblioholic is instantly a friend. Uneasy using books as shelves? Why not? I think they're brilliant... they're quite sturdy, as the insides have been replaced with lumber. Yes, that means they cut up the books... but nobody was going to read them anyway...

    Do drop by again!

  3. I personally find these images distasteful and disturbing. Books should remain books. Shelf can be made wood / stone / bones even but books... sigh.. books!
