The Book Train


Did you know that there’s a book roller coaster/train in The New York Public Library? Me neither!  Apparently it’s a revamping of the old system of convener belts that were used to transfer books around the 8 story building.  It’s either we’re so modern, or wages are so expensive (thanks mandated $15/hr minimum wage), that … Continued

Wooden Books


I’ve gotten flack before for posting mutilated books, do you think that would have stopped me?  You’d be wrong.  Here’s another example of people using books in an alternative format that I think is awesome, but other people are getting all upset over. reddit user bisnicks shared this table, which is apparently at a restaurant … Continued

Fan-made Documentary on The Battle of Hogwarts


Harry Potter is one of my favorite book series, the films are up there on my list, but no where near the top (if only).  I don’t particularly like fan-fiction, or fan made movies, or things like that, they usually suck.  But this short film (or 10 segmented list), isn’t that bad.  It’s worth a … Continued

Books within Books


kaitlanm has carved little tiny books.  I’ve posted before about alternative uses for books.  Much of the time, the backlash about the book mutilation is large, but I think this time it should be alright.  It’s not apparent if the tiny books in there are actual books, or if they’re just props.  It would be … Continued

Book Tower


reddit user normaldesign came up with a novel way to re-use damaged, un-sellable books, and spice up his office environment. He cut a template out of the book to make it just an “L”, then he glued them to the pillar behind his desk.  It makes the office alittle more chill.  It helps that the company … Continued

The Expanse


It’s not very often that a great book series gets turned into a great Television Show, or great Movie series.  Lately, (thanks to the success of Harry Potter), more and more beloved books have made the jump.  The latest series is one I only just started reading a last summer, and one I’m eagerly awaiting … Continued

Edge Art


This brings a new meaning to book codes.  In fact, I think that this would be a good way to hide some passwords and stuff.  Cheap ones aren’t even that hard to make, you could do it yourself.  The harder part would be making them look like they’re supposed to be on the edges of … Continued

Book Guns


I’ve had my fair share of book mutilation posts, and to be honest, this latest one isn’t very in-depth by any means when you compare them to previous ones.  But I imagine it will cause nearly just as much controversy, if only because of the number of Bibles that are used. Here you can see … Continued

More Book Art


There was much controversy over the last time I posted something like this.  And honestly, I think it was all silly.  But nonetheless, I’m sure there will be some more this time around.  And what kind of internet site would I be if I didn’t actively try and create controversy?  (A poor one). Artist Guy … Continued

Artfull Books


Brian Dettmer does autopsies on books, and makes beautiful works of art out of them.  There are some good ones shown there.  It must take him a really long time.  I wonder if he reads the books, to get an idea of where the big words are like in this one below, so he can … Continued
