25 Awesome DIYs With Books

By poppytalk |


I was inspired when I spotted this vintage camera made out of recycled photography books recently by swiss artists Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs — also known as Tonk. Crafted  from a stack of hollowed out tomes with a design that recycles old books.  Although this isn’t a DIY (I’m sure someone will attempt it soon); it reminded me of all the amazing DIY’s there are out there using or making books.  Here is a round-up of some faves.  (Vintage camera found via PSFK).
