While we’re not sure if this book shelf made from books constitutes literary cannibalism, you can rest assured that Yann Martel and Nick Hornby would appreciate seeing their works put to such creative and pleasing reuse. The folks at not tom. came up with this Spring Greening Contest finalist when they saw a box of books being thrown out and “couldn’t bear the thought”. The Book Book Shelf is a definite talking piece and a great way to show off all the titles you (might) have finished. If you’re a fan of not tom.‘s whimsical and eye-catching use of recycling in design then be sure and vote for them in the Spring Greening Competition!
