papier mache is a magical children's magazine. the styling & editing are absolutely wonderful, & i don't care that i'm well over a decade past being the "right" age for children's magazines. i think any aesthete will appreciate this. ♥
on the road.
lord of the flies.
out of print has been featured in a few magazines this past month, real simple & something else... i can't remember... anyways. what a great idea.
speaking of which, i found a great booth at one of my favorite antigue shops that sells books, a lot of first editions, mostly under $10. even though i am flat broke, i couldn't resist picking up a few books that i've wanted nice, displayable copies of...
opium by jean cocteau.
in watermelon sugar by richard brautigan.
on the road by jack kerouac.
& i usually don't enjoy many new books, but i had read an article on oliver sacks just a few hours before happening upon awakenings for $1. i recently read a neurology textbook & when i read the description of the book i figured there's a good chance i'll enjoy this.
& lastly, a few projects for book storage...
may december's invisible bookshelves. love, love, love.
adventures in creating's doggie bookcase. so, so cute!
100 layer cake's book planter. also spotted on rag & bone & gartenkultur via benign objects.
oh, & look! a similar take on this project from koshikawachi.com.
all of a sudden, these folded book-page sculptures are everywhere. they're so pretty & make a statement without costing a lot of money or requiring a lot of skill to create! folded book vases at lillyella.
project wedding's book paper garland is so sweet.
