A Magical Recycling Program-Turning Trash into Art

field%20of%20green.jpg

We love this, its like two Product Service Systems in one, with design and recycling thrown in. The Portland (Maine) Public Library takes old books and invited nearly 200 artists to turn them into art. 186 altered books were created and of course, being a library, you can borrow them! We like "leaves of grass" being reborn as "Field of Greens" and the Candy Dish that you borrow, eat the candy and refill before you return. See some of the books at ::Maine College of Art and then order at ::The Portland Public Library although pictures would be nice. via ::New York Times
