As more books are printed every year, read and discarded, Lucy Norman of Lula Dot gives to theses old books a new life with these chandeliers made entirely from unwanted ones. Even though many are taken to charity shops, they mostly go unsold and the charities have to pay for the books to be sent to landfill. 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 must be removed. Every page is folded in half, producing a circular arrangement which hangs around a ceiling light.
