April: National Poetry Month

Yesterday morning,  I discovered the idea of creating Book Title Poems, called “Spine Art.”  In honor of this month’s celebration of Poetry, I offer the following created from books from my own library:

Book Spine Poem1

What If?
fearless CREATING!
(was) The Key
(to) The Vein of Gold (?)
DO IT! Let’s Get Off Our Butts

Book Spine Poem 5

(After) A Night of Serious Drinking
David Copperfield
(aka) The Little Prince
(saw) The Catcher in the Rye
eating naked.


Book Spine Poem 4

Head Hunting in the Solomon Islands
(was) The Beginning and the End
(for) Henry & June
(in) Nineteen Eighty-Four . . .
For The Time Being.

      It was a lot of fun. I had friends here at the time I was putting these together, and got to share the experience with them, too. To save time, of course, you can just use the titles, but pulling out the books and photographing them adds a lot to the experience as well as the end result.
