Books books books

From bookshelfporn.com comes this simple and smart coffee table made out of Penguin paperbacks. Bravo for the recycling aspect and for making book designers' talents more enduringly visible. And at right, we know what they're into, because they carved it on their flesh!

  1. Is it just the book lover in all of us that makes me wonder what treasures are beneath the top layer!!? Wonderful idea, however!! It'd be neat to rotate the covers depending on the occasion. An endless conversation starter...

  2. Wow! I do love books, but I would never get a tattoo like that. Talk about a book lover!

  3. I wondered about the other layers of books too. I thought they should place the books at a 90 degree rotation, so the spines would be facing out on either side.

  4. I would love a coffee table like this! My tiny apartment is overrun by books and this would be a great way to make use of space, while also being able to display more books.
