Book Fetish: Volume X

Bookish things for those with a fetish for books. See previous entries here.

1. Giant Book Tent: Jack Maxwell designed a tent for FieldCandy that looks like a giant open book. It sleeps four, but it might be more fun to make this your new reading space.

2. Personalized Bookplates: If you’re planning on gifting a book this Christmas, consider using this idea for handmade personalized bookplates to make the present a bit more special.

3. Shelf Sitter: This sculpture of a woman reading can be placed on the mantle, a bookshelf or stack of books themselves. “Head bent, ankles crossed, this lissome sculpture exudes peaceful concentration and the bliss that comes from reading something you love.”

4. Book of Art: Etsy user Isaac G. Salazar has created these works out art by carefully cutting pages of books. The result is pretty amazing.

5. Harry Potter Book Page Christmas Ornaments: These ornaments are fashioned from the pages of the Harry Potter series and shaped into stars.
