For the Love of Books is my very own weekly Sunday meme dedicated to the wacky, weird, and wild world-wide-web finds related to the world of books. Topics can be anything ranging from unique bookcases, sculptures of books, and odd bookstores, to interesting uses for books, book quotes, bits of book news, etc. I love web-surfing and I have come across so many ideas that the possibities for this meme are nearly endless! If you would like to join in the fun, snag the image on the left and post the link your specific blog post in comments so that others can read about your internet find!
I thought I would use today to showcase a few alternative uses for books that I have discovered across the internet.
Big Cozy Books, which makes furniture that appears to be made from extremely oversized books.
This Into That gallery of artforms made from books, primarily into bookshelves of different sizes and shapes.
BoingBoing discovered. It does look pretty neat, and it's a great way to recycle old paperbacks, but I must admit, it does not look very comfortable.
