Reading Lamp

I have always loved old books the smell the colors the history.  When they fall apart its a sad day but what do you do with them?  Never say the word "trash", "recycle" might be ok but in my house the word is UP-Cycle!!! 

 So when a lamp in our office needed a shade I naturally thought old book spines. 

I have used book spines before as Bookmarks and they turned out great so why not a lampshade.  All I had to do was take my old falling apart books and with a razor blade carefully remove the spine of the book. Then with a piece of wire poked through the top I attached it to the lamp frame. 

Now we have a interesting and unique new shade.
