Judge These Books By Their Cover

I'm pretty obsessed with these decorative covers by Juniper Books



A decorative cover collection would look so cool on a shelf. And, they're a great gift idea, no?




How would you decorate your favorite book collection? 

I would take the "worn" approach and make them look like they were straight out of the 1800's. Now, if only there was a way to get the "old book" smell into a book. For now, I guess time will have to do.

  12. How amazing are these?! I have such a huge book collection, but I sometimes hate how the colors don't go together, etc. (that sounds OCD, I know). This would be such a pretty way to streamline everything!

  13. Looks great! I think I'm to lazy though to cover all my books, besides, I love to see their real covers. I saw someone once who had organized her books after the color of their backs, looked pretty cool!

  14. I love the idea of turning all of the books around for design purposes b/c it looks so fantastic!!! The Mr. is not going for it though. Maybe I'll just start slowing turning them around & see if he notices?

  24. Oh my, I love the way the elephant looks! I am a huge fan of worn, interesting books as a decorating tool. Also lately I have been covering uninteresting book covers with interesting scrapbook papers as cheap decor trick!
