That's awesome! People are so creative. I agree it would be sad to cut out a book like that though.

After visiting a penitentary museum, my stepdaughter gutted a book to hold a hammer. Maybe this is a nicer way to gut a book, although I would also cringe.

how cute!

but is this a prediction of the fate of books! ah!

"It would be sad to gut a book like that"--I always think the same thing :D Every time I see one of those book sculptures where they cut the pages of books into some kind of amazing sculpture, I feel a little sorry for the book.

The book planters are pretty cool, though :)

Lisa, that reminds me of the movie Shawshank Redemption!

Tara, Noooooo don't say that!

Matthew MacNish said...

Awesome.

Ahhhh! I'm the type that hates when a page gets folded back or something gets spilled on a page.

Oooh love----maybe with Arcs? Although they might not be strong enough for the process.

Now that really is cool.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Substitute toys and books on the stairs and you've got my house. :D

Now I know what to do with my old book. That is soooo cool.

Jessica Bell said...

That is so COOL! And you don't even need a "garden". Sweet! I'm so doing this ...

Liz Parker said...

I love this! You'd have to find some great-looking old books that aren't actually all that great. Maybe encyclopedias or something?

Kelly Polark said...

Beautiful!

Slamdunk said...

Wow, A+ for creative with that concept.

Sherrie Petersen said...

Looks cool, but dang, I could never do that to a book!

Meredith said...

I'll have to find a book I don't really like and do this to it. :) So pretty!

Sarah Pearson said...

On the plus side, it would be a great way to recycle those poor old books that nobody wants :-)

Dianne K. Salerni said...

That IS really pretty.
But I am a terrible plant care-taker. I feel bad whenever someone gives me a plant, because I know it's doomed.

I might be able to manage a cactus.

Lourie said...

I love books too much! hahaha... even if it was a book I would never care about reading.

This IS Fabulous! I would love to try this for my coffee table! Thanks for the link :)
