I’ve seen lots of beautiful book lamps over the years, but I’ve never made one because all the instructions that I’ve seen require you to destroy a book.

Now I admit, I regularly re-fashion books for my “Banned, Burned & Abandoned” art installation, but those are wild books, who no longer have a life outside of my art. Sophistry maybe, but not all books can be saved.

I fold wild category romances for Banned, Burned & Abandoned. This would be a different way to display them. Unattributed via Pinterest.

Then I found the tutorial for this charmer on Instructables ; best of all, it isn’t made with real books. I already have two book-boxes on my shelf.
