Dream Home Restoration Part III: The Playroom and Book Nook

I’ve talked before about the life’s-work that is our home restoration project (if you’re a newish visitor, you can read about it here and here). We’re probably about 10% through our list of projects, having tackled the kitchen and the more pressing – and depressing – stuff like turfing out the mouse population and reducing […]

"Two Years’ Vacation" by Jules Verne - alterted book art by Tomoko Takeda, a Japanese artist-designer

Artist Remakes Famous Books Into Art Masterpieces

Here's a new way to admire great works of literature as beautiful, multi-dimensional layered sculptures carved out from the actual books. These spirited works are created by Tomoko Takeda, a Japanese artist-designer who takes her cutting tools to tomes and sculpts away at them to form objects of art that have been inspired by the very stories that they spring from.

Ok,ok, so it's not book restoration or a fresh binding, but it's fun :). Folded Paper Art feeds my creative side. ~Sonya, in the Sago bindery~ www.sagoontuesdays.com.au

Anthropologie

Saved this photo from earlier this summer, but I don't remember where I got it. It's from Anthropologie's store windows. Anyway, what a great use for old books! I have so many tattered paperbacks lying around, and I'm thinking mini-versions would make supercute Xmas tree ornaments.

Your Does of Steampunk ~ Gail Carriger's Octopus Collection

The octopus, while not intrinsically steampunk, has become associated with the aesthetic quite strongly. I blame Lovecraft. Not to mention Captain Nemo. Some blame me. Why are there octopodes in my books? Because I love them. They are cute and smart and strong and, best of all, tasty. (I am a particular fan of the Greek style slapped, marinated, and grilled octopus.) My love affair with the octopus did not begin with the Parasol Protectorate books. Oh now, it has its roots in a squeaky…

“Amazing library in Zhen Yuan, China, where bookshelves are reflected by the floor below, designed to look like water https://t.co/7j8Wclacem”

Antique vellum books are getting quite popular in decorating circles. They are very beautiful but as an avid reader my biggest pet peeve is book shelves filled with "books by the yard" that look good but you know no one reads. I love my books, re read them over and over and even though I love this look- its not for me.
