Look at this amazing chair by David Karoff, on Rag and Bone Bindery’s blog – they saw it at Myopic Books in Providence, Rhode Island.

Rhode Island artist David Karoff welded the chair and attached the paperbacks: they have holes drilled though their insides and are slipped onto a hidden rebar frame. All of the materials are recycled – even the books, which are cast-offs from the Rochambeau Library Book Sales.

It even looks like it might not be painful to sit in . . .

    This is a great creation.

    You can say that we finally are able to really sit down with a good book…or books. Or in another sense, have all the great authors and minds surround you.
