This ‘Book Book Shelf’ by Yann Martel and Nick Hornby of Not Tom is a novel way to recycle your old, tattered tomes. This particular bookshelf was inspired when Martel and Hornby came across a box of books that were about to be thrown out after a yard sale.
The ‘Book Book Shelf’ is comprised of old books stuck directly onto the wall with adhesive. I’m not sure if I could bear to put my beloved books through such abuse, but this is a stellar idea for books that are headed for the dumpster. Check out some other DIY ideas for old books below.
