I was checking out artist/writer Lisa Occhipinti's book titled The Repurposed Library, there are a lot of fun ideas for old books. I have great colorful ones I won't be reading but can't part with/ Maybe this is a fun DIY weekend project…with all of my free time ;)

Artist Jen Stark's colored paper art (not a book, but very cool)
Artist Olafur Eliasson limited edition and out of print book titled Your House is a laser cut image book of his own house. Each of the 454 pages is laser cut and put together to create this amazing book. http://www.moma.org/learn/resources/library/council/eliasson
Ok, maybe I won't be doing this with my old books, but really, how cool is this?
