Carved Books by Susan Hoerth

“Collecting bits and pieces from my travels around the world and assembling them into a fine art collection of Curios, is my passion. I have an eye for collecting vintage items to retell stories of the past, bring new life and preserving memories. Each piece that I design includes a mixture of the discarded, and forgotten ordinary moments in everyday life. As of late I have had an obsession with restoring and creating pieces of art with antique books that have been discarded.”

Who Needs a Christmas Tree When You Have Books?

I looked in TinEye, but couldn’t find the originator of this. I’ve decided to post it anyway to add to my What to Do With  Discarded Books collection. If it’s yours, please let me know. I’m intrigued by the tree and all the other repurposed items in this little corner – the lamp from white dishes, wheels as art and is that a little evergreen growing out of the inverted reading lamp?

Via The Centered Librarian

Update: June, 2012

Happily, the original photographer has contacted me and I can now credit Patti who discovered and photographed this great tree in an Anthropologie store. You can see the original post on her blog, Pandora’s Box. Thank you Patti.
