      "Lucy Norman of Lula Dot gives old books a new life with these impressive chandeliers made entirely from unwanted tomes. Her attractive designs give a whole new meaning to the term ‘light read’ – each page is folded in half and the designs are hung around a ceiling light in a circular form."

      'Light Reading chandelier' designed by design studio of British designer, Lucy Norman made of books that have been read and discarded. There is currently no infrastructure in place to recyle paper books because the grade of paper is low and the glue on the spine must be removed. These books are wasted so designer used them to create this beautiful chandelier. Each page is folded in half, producing a circular arranged that hangs around a dome.
