Cool Idea: Use Book Pages For Art

In this photo, from Linday and Kristen Buckingham's home, their son Will's bedroom is decorated with custom bedding, a vintage Union Jack flag, and neat rows of framed artwork.

The artwork, though, isn't from any expensive gallery. Instead, they're pages from a vintage children's book. I've actually done this at my own home, with pages from one of my favorite children's books, Album of Horses. If you're unwilling to tear pages from a favorite book, consider looking for it on eBay. I've found pages from books there for minimal expense. You can also search garage sales or thrift stores for worn-out books whose artwork is still intact.

In London I found a shop in the Camden Stables market that had loads of loose pages from old books. Most of them were the old wood-block style prints. I picked up a few for my mother and sister to frame and use as art, but at the time the exchange rate made it too pricey to buy a bunch for myself.

Looks good! But I don't think I could ever tear out pages from books

I did this with my daughter's room. I copied some of my favorite pictures from my childhood books and some new that I hope she and I will love and become favorites too.

I did this in my master bath - I purchased the book Manolo Blahnik Drawings and framed approx. 20 pages using different color mattes with the same frame.

Sometimes I think about doing an Alice in Wonderland theme (my favorite!) in my future baby's room, and I would definitely like to frame illustrations from the book.
