    Those hanging books could have been donated to a library, school etc. What a waste… 🙁

      Yes, but I got them at donation centers, and I used them for art in my son’s room, and he wakes up with a smile on his face every day. Art is in the eye of the beholder, but thanks for sharing your opinion.

    I disagree with Kenny! My grandsons bring home books, many times a year, that the school is done with. Every thrift shop I have ever been in.has a plethora of books for sale. My own library is overflowing with books. I think this is a great way to save books from a landfill! Since you print out and cover the pages, to the theme of your choice, the possibilities are limitless. Jane Eyre for a woman who loves who work, Winnie the Pooh for a nursery, How To books on micro beers for a man cave, and on and on it goes. Like clothing, we have an excess of books that make their way to landfills every year. Why not turn books, that are headed out of your home or books that you save from thrifting, into art?

    I guess it is all in how you look at it, but I feel like you have reused something that would otherwise be eventually trashed. Plus, you have a really great imagination to come up with such an economically wise statement wall.

    Great job!

      Awww…thanks, Tambra! My thoughts exactly. I actually got all these books from the selection of “almost un-sellable” books at the thrift store–they had had them so long, they basically discounted them to get rid of them. So, I feel like I gave them a second chance to shine! And, since I did Harry Potter, I’m sure this book wall will eventually be gifted to another HP lover. But, I love all of your ideas! It’s a great “art installation” no matter the theme!
