I saw these antiqued book bundles in the Restoration Hardware catalog and was fascinated! I love how anonymous and sculptural the old books without covers are! Needless to say I knew what I would pick up on the next book sale in our library. We found bunch of old unwanted books on the table near the door - all free. I chose the yellowed ones and brought a full bag of them home. The covers cut off - piece of string tied around - and I have my own free version of the lovely book sculptures.
Check out their site - I love, love, love melancholic beauty of their interiors.
