DIY: Build your own book arch February 26, 2020 – Posted in: Books and Art, bookshops, Interior Design, sculpture

Scott Hill, the proprietor of Sandman Books in South Florida,  has shared his secrets on how to make your very own book arch.

It begins with a familiar bookseller quandary – what to do with all those books one acquires “that are simply at the end of their lives”.

Hill decided to do something fun and went to work building a book arch. He built his first one in 2013 and when his shop moved in 2019 he was back at it.

The arch has become a bit of tourist destination and next month the first wedding vows will be taken under it.
