Spine Stories

Boing Boing shared a site I found very, very amusing today.  Nina Katchadourian  These are seriously fun–love the shark one. 

She makes stories out of the titles on book spines.  Does a much better job.  These are images I’d put on my walls.

But, I thought I’d do one for fun.  As we’ve long established on this blog, I’m no photographer.  I also have a dirty mind.  <wg>

Read the titles in order to get the story.

Little trouble getting Pelland’s book title to show up and there’s a glare or two, so here they are in order.

    The shark one was great! Too much fun, so I did one, too. 😉

    Yours is provocative.

    I was a little too ambitious. I actually removed three books right before the picture. 😉

    Was trying to go longer, but a lot of mine did not work well together.
