Book art for your wall

May 16, 2012|By Dave Rosenthal

I'm always interested in finding new ways to use books as art -- whether it's creating a spectrum from shelved books or recycling books as craft projects. Here's another: Litographs, colorful wall prints that incorporate the words of Moby Dick and other classics into designs.

Founder Danny Fein notes that with each purchase a book is donated to a community in need through the Baltimore-based International Book Bank. For contemporary books, each print is custom-made from a physical copy of the book that is scanned and printed back out in "art form," he said.

Books, art and charity -- a nice combination.
