LIGHT READING: upcycled books by Lula Dot
Most of the people I know think that almost every sheet of paper is recycled. But in reality more and more books aren’t being sold and end up on a landfill. For example 10,000 books a week from one charity will go to waste.

There is currently no infrastructure set up to recycle the paper from books because the paper is low grade and the glue on the spine has to be removed. So Lula Dot took these wasted books and used them to create an attractive chandelier, ‘Light Reading’. Every page is folded in half, producing a circular arrangement which hangs around a ceiling light.
