Lucy Norman Paperback Partition

Love It or Hate It? Paperback Partition

UK designer and artist Lucy Norman often uses recycled objects for her work, and that's definitely the case with this Paperback Partition. Norman writes, "More books are printed every year, read and discarded. Even though many are taken to charity shops, they mostly go unsold and the charities have to pay for the books to be sent to landfill. For example 10,000 books a week from one charity will go to waste. There is currently no infrastructure set up to recycle the paper from books because the paper is low grade and the glue on the spine must be removed. "

So, to counter this waste, Norman has created a wall that uses these abandoned books. She says that it provides good thermal and acoustic insulation. I also love how one side of the wall has a muted look, while the other displays the colorful book spines. Love decorating with books? Check out these ideas!
