Incredible Things Made with Books

From the a charging dock to a bar made from 700 old books . Check these incredible things made with books.

The Book Bar

The Book Bar


Instead of throwing away old books from the University. These guys decided to rescue these books from that awful fate – and what better use for them than a bar from which to entertain their frequent guests.

Made from over 700 discarded hard-bound medical journals, this massive pile of endocrinology-related literature took several days to complete, and was entirely worth it.link

Book Charging Dock for Iphone


Dracula, Vintage Book Charging Dock for iPod and iPhone. link

Book Tunnel


This is the famous project Book Tunnel created by Slovak artist, Matej Krén in the Prague Municipal Library. Yes, mirrors are used to create this effect. link

Carved Book Landscapes


Multidisciplinary artist Guy Laramee creates incredible book landscapes by carving old books, dictionaries and encyclopedias. His series entitled The Great Wall and Biblios represent the degradation of human culture and feature glacial landscapes, deep valleys and plateaus. link

Book Igloo


Colombian artist Miler Lagos constructed this entirely self-supporting book igloo using nothing more than carefully aligned books. Titled ‘Home’, this dome-like installation was on display at MagnanMetz Gallery in New York City late last year.link

Book Painting


Unlike most normal people, LA artist Mike Stilkey doesn’t just read books, he paints on them. The artist arranges thousands of old books and paints the books’ spines using pen and ink and acrylics.

“I’ve got these books and I’ll never read them, but I want them for some reason and I’ve never known why. And then I started drawing on them,” says Stilkey.

“I like to think of my artwork as one giant poem. I never really have a concrete idea of what I’m going to do. I just kind of feel my way through it and it comes out in a way that I don’t always expect. I really try not to edit myself too much.”

Mike Stilkey was born in Los Angeles, California in 1975 and received an Associate Degree from Santa Monica City College in 1997.

Approximately 5,000 books and ten days of work. link

Book Waterfall


Spanish artist Alicia Martin used thousands of old books to create amazing book waterfalls that pour out the windows and straight into the streets. She is well known for her massive book installations across Europe, however Martin’s most recent series, called Biografies, are based in her hometown, Madrid.

Each book installation was made of approximately 5,000 books and installed in the three of Madrid’s historic buildings. The heavy weight is supported by a special metal framework that’s hidden inside, however the books’ pages are loose and free to rustle in the wind. link

Bedtime Bear


This guy looks way too cute to eat! Be prepared for some tears and tantrums at the table as soon as someone decides to put a fork through Teddy’s head. link
