After talking about the artful way I have seen books used, I wanted to show you. Some of these ideas are easy to replicate should you care to. It's a great way to use those collections or dusk collectors in a unique and creative way. Have an empty corner you don't know what to do with?
I'm not talking about arranging books in a clever way on a shelf. No need to be a bibliophile either. You can grab an assortment of books at garage sales, flea markets, etc. to create your own installation ~
Although, I do want to add that what is between the covers can be just as useful ~
