Middle of the week is perfect time to take a breather with pictures. Clearly my family was not alone in our love of books, as these pictures show imagination extends to fantasizing: If only I could dress myself in words…
Last summer, I featured a dress from a Dallas homeshow that had been formed from the crimped pages of books (link to my summer reading list article, here). At the time, it was one of the most-favorited pictures fluttering around the internet. How better to combine a girl’s two loves — words & fashion — than in a dress assembled of the two? Surely, this dress was unique. And yet… no. As these pictures show, our love of books has inspired more than one designer.

Perhaps my favorite, is this dress, made by artist Peter Clark for the Holland Paper Biennial in 2010. Is it not the perfect uniform for reading?
