Need help with adding old books to studio decor

Post by gitlvr »

Hi folks, I'm new here, and I have a question.
I am sort of rearranging, redecorating my studio, and I would like to incorporate a few old books I have into the decor, preferably on the walls.
My space is quite small, so that is most likely the only option. They are all fairly thin, and fairly old. If anyone has any suggestions how to go about this it would be appreciated.

Shadow box or similar shallow display frames, maybe?

If you just want to display the covers, take the books to somewhere with a large-enough color scanner, copy the covers- warts and all- and mount the copy into a proper-sized picture frame; hang on wall. Put the books somewhere handy to pull out when you want them.

If you'd like to display the books so you can grab one from the display when you want it, what you need is a "Wall Mounted Magazine Rack," or "Wall Mounted Brochure Holder," readily available (search online- Wayfair, Michaels, Walmart, etc.). If you like to build stuff, they are easy to make.
