I saw Cathy at 746 books had posted on Book Spine Poetry, where she arranges the spine of a set of books and turns it into a poem. I liked the idea but thought I’d arrange mine into a story concept. Here someone super rich has an dramatic epiphany after a rather lonely life and feels the need to take a silver sword so as to meet the mystical Kafka.
This is clever! I love your collection, Alex. And your thoughtful arrangement. Hope you’re doing well!
Thanks. I’m glad you like it. Glad you’re taking photos.
What a creative idea – would be fun to actually try to write this story.
Ha! I bet you could easily do your own version too.
You have excellent taste! I don’t think I’ve ever read ‘The Silver Sword’.
It’s officially a children’s book but I read it again a few months ago and it still works well as an adult. There’s so much in the story. Very powerful.
Oh, really! I will check it out.
Years ago, when I was incapacitated, I paid a person to come in and clean the house. She arranged all my books in the shelves from tallest to shortest! It told a story indeed, but not via the titles.
You see stories in everything! It’s a wonderful trait of yours. You’re filled witt imagination.
I should try you pile of books idea and see what happens! It’s a clever idea.
What an awesome story idea! (And you know how rabidly I love Kafka!)
Such an atmospheric writer. How many writers get their own worldwide adjective? I can only think of Kafka and Orwell.
I love this idea – and I’m impressed by the titles shown here, too.
Thanks. I bet you could do one with films
