A new photo project is demonstrating a love of beautiful books by pairing good eats and the written word

The instagram account Ice Cream Books isn't filled with a library of frozen confectionary recipes and bindings as one might expect. Rather, the visual aesthetic is filled with highly-saturated backdrops and gorgeously grotesque scenes starring modern literature and the oft-melted remnants of chilled dairy treats.

The decidedly camp catalogue of images demonstrate a love for beautiful books and an affection for confection in a colorful and compelling manner. Published alongside a brief description of a novel, its cover artist and the ice cream in question, the photo series has already garnered a cult following of fans from all walks of life.
