Ever looked around at your massive abundance of quality literature and thought it would look great all hacked up and it’s skinned hide used for visual effect? Ever looked at that mass of pages, the result of many hours of an author’s loving labour, and had the desire to rip them out and discard them?

Etsy is full of decorations made out of books and their pages and how-to sites are filling up with cheap and easy ways to destroy the original purpose of books in order to get copy a popular fad.

    I was HORRIFIED, you totally had me going! I was squeamish watching this, but after the Bronte I KNEW no books would be harmed in the making of this video *praise baby jesus*

    That was brilliant! I love that books are for reading not for decorating and don’t murder a book. But the last line was the best about how books don’t have feelings but they can give them.

    As cute as book decorations are every time I think of making something I think the exact same thing – how could I pick a book to destroy to make a decoration!? I’d rather buy hollow books and then do something with them.
