Artful Books


Isaac Salazar


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 ~

Jonathan Callen, an artist out of London creates sculpture out of varied materials, but many times books are his medium of choice.  The books are held together with screws

vanishing shelf art ~  The negative space becomes equally as important






Table art ~






 Did you ever look at books as such good multi-taskers?
