If You Love Books as Much as I Do...

I think by now you probably are noticing that my imagination is pretty wild. I am also lucky enough to be able to freely express myself as an artist. I got nobody to tell me No. : ) It is just the girls and I and they think what I do is pretty swell. This is one of my favorite projects of all time. One because I love books and it is inspired by one of my favorite books and two, it has a lot of sentimental meanings.
My favorite book of all time is called The Shadow of the wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. In the book, there is this secret Cemetery of Forgotten Books where old and forgotten titles are lovingly preserved. As an avid reader and lover of books, this strike a cord with me. I imagined this vast secret library filled with layer and layer of old dusty books. So I decided I needed my own dusty book archway.
It took me a few sleepless nights to figure out how to do this. First I thought maybe I will build a bookcase around the doorway but it would be an accident waiting to happen. Then I realized I have a bunch of book binders left over from my vintage book wallpaper project.
My very own secret Cemetery of Forgotten Books. All dusty but forever adored.
