The creator of this fantastic bath tub, Vanessa Mancini calls it the bath of knowledge. And we’re inclined to agree, primarily because of the generous amount of books covering the tubs boundaries. While that collection would certainly not make a bathtub actually usable, Vanessa managed to get it done by fitting in the deconstructed books tightly together and sealing them over a metal frame.
Artist Guy Laramee carves these magnificent and beautiful landscapes from books. Books are packed and the pages cut to carve out amazing settings and scenes, for these two series entitled Biblios and The Great Wall.
Book covers generally tend to show females in very interesting poses. And it all gets way more interesting and humorous when a dude tries to copy those poses. The contrast is so very evident, and so very amusing. Interesting work from Jim C. Hines.
Beautiful Landscape Sculptures is a creative series by British artist Kyle Kirkpatrick. The fictional landscapes take root in a very fertile medium: books. The tiny dioramas have their topographies and landscapes carved out of books, creating a wondrous world that lets viewers imagine the landscape, fictional as it may be.

Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.
When things just aren’t going your way, we recommend making a list. You never know when the opportunity to get back at people presents itself. Yeah, f*ck love, send forgiveness to the bin, be vengeful.
Good Ideas Glow in the Dark by Croatian designers Bruketa&Žinić is a book that gives up its secrets only in the dark. When the light is turned off, words on the spine and cover of the book reveal themselves and glow. We suspect the creatively designed book is a trap to dupe people into reading the annual report for investment company Adris. Because lets be honest, no one wants to read something like an annual report.
