Artist Builds An Igloo Made Entirely Of Books [Pics]

Hundreds of novels were stacked together to create this architectural dome.

If you’re looking for a creative way to upcycle your unwanted books, you might like to turn to Miler Lagos’ recent installation for inspiration. This Colombia-based artist has carefully stacked hundreds of books on top of each other in a circular pattern to create this amazing igloo architecture. The dome of books is able to fit a person standing or a small group of people sitting down.

The book igloo has been on display at the MagnanMetz Gallery in New York City.
