Discarded Novel Artwork
The Daniel Speight Book Block Project Turns Old Covers into Literary Art

By: Nikki Taylor (Star) Oct 3, 12

If you have old hardcover books that you no longer want, let the Daniel Speight Book Block project take care of them. Speight is a graphic artist from London who collects discarded books and draws on them. When the hardcovers are lined up in a row with the binding facing towards the wall, the books create images of cartoon London architecture.

Speight uses what he describes as “a new form of hand crafted screenprinting” to get the images onto the spines of the books. The Daniel Speight Book Block project pays homage to iconic London landmarks as well as displays lesser known architectural pieces that are aesthetically pleasing.

Daniel Speight gives old books new meaning by turning them into art pieces that are tributes to London’s finest buildings. They also beautify cluttered bookshelves.
