I recently discovered “spine poetry” through a reposting from Brain Pickings by my friend and Stephens Press publisher, Carolyn Uber. It seems that for many years Artist Nina Katchadourian has been enjoying and sharing books in a whole new way. Her ongoing Sorted Books project constructs irreverent, humorous and witty sentences from strategically arranging the titles displayed on the books’ spines.

So clever that I tried it myself. I think this just might become a new segment of Redpengirl posts…
