Creative Book Porn

A fellow writer recommended I take a look at a blog called Book Porn. Apparently it’s a blog with pictures of the most beautiful bookstores and libraries in the world. As I’d already written a blog post on this (The Seduction of Bookstores), I was curious what more this site had to offer.

However, she didn’t remember what the url was and just told me to google it. So, when I got home, I googled ‘Book Porn’. I didn’t find the blog, but I did find a lot of other great things on Pinterest, a digital pinboard. If you type ‘Book Porn’ there you’ll get an array of creative ideas on how you can use books as art. Before I knew it, I lost track of  time looking at how creative some people are.

Here’s a small sample of what you can find when you look for ‘Book Porn’ on Pinterest (click on the pictures and you’ll go to the websites where they come from):

Go on, try it yourself. But a note of caution: it’s addictive.

  1. These are so very cool. I ended up going through Pinterest for quite a while, thanks to your post. I need to start a board for the amazing home libraries out there, too …

    1. When I walked into my local bank they had a set of Bibliochaise (chair and library in one) in the waiting room. I’m jealous you own one, they’re all beautiful.

  2. What fun. It is addictive you are right. There are some lovely pictures of libraries around the world on one of the sites I came across. Books make lovely art. I can’t imagine replacing my library with a Kindle – well not yet.
