Book Cell by Matej Kren

We love decorating with books, but we had never imagined building with books (in our adult lives) until now.

At Lisbon's Modern Art Center, artist Matej Kren made this structure by building an octagonal frame, filling it with books, then dismantling the shell. He arranged the pieces to create complex shapes and patterns to stunning effect. From the outside, the books' exposed edges almost look like bricks. Once inside, a world of colorful graphic slivers fills the frame.

This amazing display gives us some new ideas on how to arrange reading materials in our own homes. Or at least on how to have fun trying.
