Great Stories, Well Told.

Best in Books, New and Old.

There is always a happy ending with great stories, the ones well-read and well displayed. The best of books are in the best of places, in one's hands for reading, and those positioned as art. Holding a book, the authored piece of a refined work, is a lasting pleasure. And there is still nothing like the visual appeal and ease of using books for artful goods and decor. Size, color, shape, titles, or just a page, all lend to the versatility of these great reads, well told, well used.

Shelf Art, Wall Art, Pedestal Art, Table Talk, Upcycled Art. All places and spaces for books, pages, illustrations, and covers. The use of old stories begins with the book, and can end with a quote, a repurposed use, ready for a new frame to read.

Everyone should have a library, even if it's just a single shelf.
You've found a great way to decorate and fill it!
