Book Buildings

I was recently introduced to a most AMAZING resource on the web - FLAVORWIRE. When it comes to random, interesting stuff about cultural news, they are quickly becoming my go-to site. Today, we connected on a whole new level. They, like us, are pretty big book nerds... Emily wrote a post about Five Things to Do with Weeded and Donated Materials, which had some really great ideas (my vote goes to hiding them at Ikea), but for those who want to make more of a statement with their extra books, you can always make your own book building!

Being a good Canadian kid, I was immediately drawn to the igloo designed by a Colombian artist - Colombia must be much warmer than ol' Canada, because they only need half-igloos! Check out the entire gallery of Buildings Made Out of Books, and leave a comment with your favorite*!

* Or for my fellow Canadians, your favourite!


  1. I really like the 10th picture. The one of the Kansas City Public Library. More parking lots should look like giant bookshelves!
