That Time We Saw Rad Spine Poetry on Instagram

In June, we played a little game of #Riotgrams on Instagram, and one of the challenges was spine poetry. As usual, our awesome community came up with some delightful entries, and I just wanted to share a few. They aren’t in any particular order: I really did just browse and pick a few rad ones, and some of them are even by my fellow Rioters. Once you’re through, you can check out all the images uploaded with the hashtag and discover some cool reads or new pals!
