Maybe we should. Take a look at the way these vintage books have been transformed — doubling as art with a function.
I discovered Vintage Book Clocks over on Inhabitat and love how the cover art and history of these old books are preserved and recycled. Whether you have a favorite classic or childhood picture book, it’s a cool way to infuse color, texture and a piece of what makes you you, into a room.
It made me think about the Hunger Games trilogy. My son loves the simplicity of the book design with their foil embossed covers. We should tell the folks over at Vintage Book Clocks not to wait ’til these get dusty!
