I always get such a thrill from discovering new book artists, so I was really happy that Flavorwire posted today about a piece of Australian artist Kylie Stillman‘s work. Represented by Utopia Art Sydney, Kylie makes beautiful book carvings, often with nature themes.

I love Georgia Russell‘s art. The Scottish artist cuts up printed works (books, newspapers, maps, music scores, photos, etc.) to create simply amazing pieces. I find the the new landscape/nature-based pieces particularly striking. If you fall in love with one, check the England & Co. website to see if it’s available for sale.

I couldn’t help smiling when I saw these Novel-T shirts this morning (thanks Erica!). Nerdy book t-shirts? What’s not to love? I personally would never wear a numbered athletic jersey to support a pro-sports player (I’ll go as far as an A’s hat), but I’ll happily don a t-shirt to show where my literary allegiance lies. Supporting your favorite literary hero has the added bonus of supporting the development of children’s writing skills — Novel-T donates $1 of each purchase to 826NYC. Click here to see the full line of t-shirts here. There’s also a release party next Friday, May 7, in Brooklyn.

Have you ever gotten a raised eyebrow from a stranger on a bus or in a cafe over your book choice? Now you can disguise your guilty reading pleasures with the “Reading List” series of book jackets by Book City Jackets ($12 for set of 3.) You’ll never have to worry about Twilight judgement again.

I’m always excited when I see book wallpaper. Some part of me wishes I could live in an old-fashioned library, with books all the way up to the ceiling, and a towering ladder to reach them. This dream started back when I was in elementary school, when I would have loved to have this “Library” wallpaper in my bedroom.  Designed by Tom Slaughter, this book wallpaper is part of Cavern Home’s artist series. Cavern Home is a boutique wallpaper design firm, and they have many beautiful non-bookish designs too. Check them out here. For black-and-white book wallpaper in a different style, check out this earlier post.
