In size order?
Organized by "read" and "not read"?
Take them down and let's get creative!
It's time for some book spine poetry! I first heard about this on Twitter from the fabulously creative Tui Snider (@mentalmosaic). Ever since, I've been meaning to drag my own books off the shelf and have some fun with it. Today I finally did.
What is Book Spine Poetry?
While I think the name is self explanatory, I don't like to make assumptions. Book spine poetry is the art of piling up your books one on top of another, with all of their spines facing the same way, creating a poem of sorts using the titles. Take a picture of your poem and you are done! Check out the 2012 Book Spine Poem Gallery from 100 Scope Notes for some fun examples.And then, here is mine:
The End Of Men
The Last Policeman
The Last Man
And, finally, I wanted to read my poem to you. I hope you enjoy my dramatic delivery:
What do you think?
Have you created any book spine poetry?
Is there another arrangement of these books that you think could be just as poetic?
Let me know in the comments below!
Thanks for reading!
