Creative Bookworm Bookcase by Atelier 010

The Dutch designers at Atelier 010 have created the Bookworm bookcase. “Bookworm is the sculptural answer to a commission to design and produce an organic bookcase. Due to the curved shape, the case also offers a place to sit and relax. The self-supporting shape consists of three parts, which are assembled on site and kept upright by a stainless steel foot in the sidewall. Bending thin layers of MDF and plywood across custom-made molds creates the curved shape. The outsides of the walls are spray-painted in colour, whilst the insides are fresh in white. A light bulb dangling from the top of the worm gives light to the reader’s eyes.” Take a look!

Landscapes from Old Books by Guy Laramee

Guy Laramee from Canada creates increadible sculptures from old books. Rather the material for the art works are old dictionaries and encyclopedias. From these books Guy carves landscapes and plateau, and then paints them in natural colors. "My work, in 3D as well as in painting, originates from the very idea that ultimate knowledge could very well be an erosion instead of an accumulation. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening." Enjoy!

Beautiful “Literary” Jewelry by Jeremy May

Jeremy May is a big fan of books. But unlike most, he loves not only to read them but also uses them as material for creating a jewelry. According to the author, such “literary” jewelry is much more original than their counterparts from gold and silver, and if you wear them you will not go unnoticed. Fancy decorations are produced by a unique lamination process. Cut from the books lists are laminated and coated with glitter and then inserted into the place from which they were taken. It turns out that the book becomes, and the material for decoration, and then – a kind of boxes for storage. This unique collection uncludes rings, earrings, necklaces.
