Heavy Reading

At first glance they appear to be well-worn old library books, but these heavy tome are actually created from salvaged building bricks. The faux literary works are the work of Melbourne, Australia artist Daryl Fitzgerald , who stencils cover art from literary classics onto the recycled bricks. The whimsical series is called “Light Reading”, of course.

  2. what beautiful, inspiring objects. I love the implication of so much richness one cannot reach into, as in open, and the weight they carry by the very titles as well as the bricks. like the play on ‘light’ with that weight…

  3. These look fantastic! I can imagine having a couple as book ends 🙂

    Wow, I might have to paint my own books onto bricks and decorate my house with them. They’re simple and gorgeous and earthy. ❤ it.
