Cool Idea: Books As Décor

This weekend, when I stopped by the Berkeley Anthropologie, I was pleasantly surprised by the window display. Using old books (I'm hoping that these were books that would've been recycled, not ones that people still wanted to read), those clever Anthropologie folks folded individual pages, and then strung the books through their binding to hang them. They remind me a bit of paper chandeliers.

To get a closer look, read more.

I first saw this technique used by an Etsy artist, though her books were meant as wall hangings, with the book covers serving as the frames. Do you like this idea?
