Books are to me one of the more precious art objects around. And they are originally trees that are natures masterpieces. What if we could merge the two? What a wonderfull idea no?
YES, that is just what two italians has thought of in their Gartenkultur project.
They take a book, they make a hole and they insulate thus protect the book from humidity with a mixture of vegetal glue that is a water based glossy varnish for wood, completely ecological. Then they fill the hole with soil and plant a tree that is ready to grow and live and prosper in this inovative book vase. This new ecological form of the book is recycable, has been reycled and is a living breathing beautifull decoration interior object for your home. Its really really pretty to look at – especially for one like me that loves plants and books. Currently they are only available stores in northern Italy but soon they will also have an on-line shop.
