I Just Love a Good Book

With the spotlight on recycle - reuse - restore these days, here are some innovative artists who have a use for books that have been read and enjoyed.  

I'm staying out of the controversy as to whether it's sacrilege to cut up a book or whether it's a blessing to donate it to be re-purposed. Just enjoy.

This piece of art is a first edition Essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson interlaced with plastic cord.

Art can also be functional. Here are some re-purposed books that are lamps!
