Via If It’s Hip, It’s Here
Gartenkultur of Italy has found a way to repurpose and recycle old hardback books. By drilling all the way through a book (or a stack of books glued together) adding a mesh net and some dirt, they become planters. Succulents, bonsai trees and other small greenery can happily live in these novel homes.
The pages do not get wet when watered because each book is covered with an insulating material. If the plant dies, you can simply put in a new one.
