DIY Inspiration: Books As Planters

Italy's Gartenkulter has turned old books into the most amazing up-cycled planters!


Via Inhabit:
With the recent rise in popularity of electronic readers, thoughts of “book extinction” have really seeped their way into design conversations. Italy-based Gartenkulter pays tribute to the tree with these beautiful planters made from old and disused books. By removing the heart of the book’s cover and pages and then creating a seal, the book becomes a home for a living and growing tree. “As each seed becomes a plant or tree, the book becomes a pot or cradle.”

I absolutely love these!

Now, who wants to hollow out some old books for me so I can get started?

  1. Liked your post. Someday I hope to write a book where the royalties will pay for the copies I give away.
