Book Innovations, from 3D Flip Books to Stacked Novel Sanctuaries

— June 2, 2010 — Art & Design
Before technology allowed for the production of e-Readers, I wasn't aware that there existed a difference between someone who loves reading and someone who loves books. There is. If you enjoy reading for the reading, you may not be a true book fan--and perhaps, then, you won't enjoy this cluster on book innovations as much as someone who loves books for the sole reason that they are books.

Their glossy covers, unique fonts, and even the smell of their pages have inspired a plethora of book innovations, from sculptures made out of numbers to plastic surgery kids books. Click through this collection to see for yourself!
