Endbands (headbands and tailbands, if you describe elements at the top and bottom of the book block, respectively), are often overlooked by the ordinary book users. However, they are a very important element and can become a part of your design.
It seems like anything can be made out of old books nowadays, and artist Pam Langdon has transformed them into flowers. These paper sculptures have been meticulously folded, with the artist paying close attention to detail. The artist also treats her work like actual flowers and arranges them on shelves as though they are natural specimens. The only aspect of these sculptures that remind us they were once books is the yellowish tinge of each blossom.
