laura cahill: recycled books
UK's Laura Cahill began using second hand books after doing research into common unwanted objects. One of the most common unwanted objects that can be found at either thrift shops and flea markets are books. The glue in old books makes them extremely difficult to recycle. So she started to turn the second hand books she was collecting, into desirable objects such as furniture, lighting and ornaments. The result are lovely 3D forms in undulating cylinder shapes.
