The New York Times has a great slideshow for “Books as a Way to Grace a Room,” in conjunction with the article “Selling a Book by Its Cover” which discusses assembling and designing custom libraries by Thatcher Wine of Juniper Books. This is where I found the exceptional work of Federico Uribe who finds inspiration and materials from Wonder Book and discarded text books in Miami-Dade County schools. When I lived in Miami for most of my life, I didn’t have enough imagination…
But how do designers (especially book cover designers) feel about the idea of rewrapping/recycling old books, and the realization that so many are tossed & gathering dust in used book stores that may be close to going out of business?

Entre Lineas is a one-off collection where unknown pieces are inspired  by the traditions of ready-made. Through the Entre Lineas collection, 	 		MN*LS manages to add a different value to given objects and  reinterpret them by the application of handmade techniques.  Specifically, the 	 			collection is comprised of illuminated objects in a limited edition  that appeal due to their rather poetic approach. Small hand folded  			antique books are turned into romantic and stylish lighting. If until  now we were accustomed in using a light to read between a book’s lines,   			now the light itself comes from between lines, in Spanish “entre  lineas”.

[quoted from source] Readers’ Nest is a simple but ingenious little shelf for all book lovers. Simply place the book up side down on top of the shelf, and you will easily find the page where you stopped reading.
