Book Lover Arranges Her Huge Library of Novels Into Imaginative Scenes

Book Art Book Displays by Elizabeth Sagan

All book lovers will know that a great story can spark your imagination and transport you to another world. However, rather than keep each fictional story in the confines of their pages, self-described “bookstagrammer” Elizabeth Sagan pays homage to her love of literature by arranging her huge collection into imaginative book art displays.

Sagan has been sharing her love of books with her 100,000+ Instagram followers for several years, but never seems to run out of creative ideas. Each colored book cover acts like a brush stroke. When cleverly combined with others, they create literary scenes (best viewed from above). In all cases, Sagan is pictured among her meticulously placed book displays, acting out each narrative and theme. In one image, she’s seen surfing on a “wave” of blue-colored books; and in another, Sagan lays in between a collection of black books, placed to look like huge vampire wings.

When she’s not running her popular Instagram, Sagan also co-curates My Book Features with fellow bookstagrammer James Trevino. Here, the duo share creative book art images from a worldwide community of story lovers.

You can see more of Sagan’s book installations on Instagram.
