Like Books, But Don’t Like to Read?

Posted inThe Daily Heller

If you like books, but don’t like to read, here’s a solution to all your problems: Leanne Shapton‘s wooden block books. At last, all the literary cache without those pesky pages filled with words to bog you down.

Shapton, the author of the minimalist/illustrated novel Was She Pretty? and the new art director of the Times Op-Ed Page, has found a way to make owning the classics a visual treat (and a sound investment).

The books, I mean blocks, I mean book blocks, are available at my favorite repository for decoupage, the John Derian Company.
