For Bookish Birds

I discovered these wonderful birdhouses by artist David Vissat on Letterology today, and just had to share them with my readers. Made from old books and other salvaged finds, Vissat got the idea for these when he was making a birdhouse for his mother and ran out of wood, so used an old book as a roof instead. Now, Vissat searches and scavenges flea markets and libraries for discarded and vintage books for this collection which he calls Wild Wings Literary Lodgings. These birdhouses are meant to be kept inside a book lover’s nest as decorative objects as they obviously can’t withstand the elements. They’re available at various online shops, including Uncommon Goods and Pinch Gallery, where most of the models shown here can be found.
