Book Spine Poetry… You’ve heard of it, haven’t you? It’s pretty simple, and anyone with a collection of books can become an artist. You just go to your bookshelf and pull out a handful of books with interesting titles, stack them in a logical (and hopefully musical) order, and take a picture. Voila! You’ve come up with something magical!
I have seen some truly lovely images and stirring words. #BookSpinePoetry on Twitter is a great source of inspiration, and I’ve even caught some on Instagram. After seeing so many I loved, I decided to give it a try—and invite my friends to join me.
Here’s what I came up with:
Works of Poetic Artistry by Friends
I asked for contributions on Facebook and Twitter, and I am delighted to present to you these masterpieces!
All this reminds me a little bit of a Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt! Have you done one of those before? Great fun, though Book Spine Poetry is a different spin on that old classic. I had fun with both of them!
