Book sculptures

Now, I’ve had the problem before of trying to dispose of outdated law textbooks, both recently outdated, and a hundred years or so past it. Not a soul wants the pesky things – not art groups (for interesting materials), not theatre groups (for historic-looking props). It’s frustrating, as nobody likes to throw ‘good’ books out, but out of date law books are almost dangerous – rely on something in an old book that’s now been superceded, and you could get in trouble.

So…isn’t this a better way to re-use old books?
That’s some beautiful book-based things that man makes!

  1. We tried that too – posted the offer on the Scottish Law Librarians Group list, got a few taken off our hands, but the vast, unloved majority ended up going to recycling.I did manage to split a few encyclopedias amongs some arty friends who would have done something fun with yellowing pages defining obscure legal terms šŸ™‚
