Here at Flavorpill, we’re pretty big book nerds. We’re such big book nerds that what we’d really like, more than anything, is to live in a house made of books — we think it’d totally work as long as we weren’t reading one from the ceiling when it started to rain. Plus, we’ve been known to appreciate books as much — or almost as much — for their aesthetic qualities as for their intellectual ones, so it only makes sense to use them as the grandest form of decor. Therefore, we bring you our wish list of buildings made out of books that we’d really like to live (or play) in. Click through to check them out, and let us know which one you think would be best to house you, your cozy armchair and a cup of tea.

Another work by Matej Kren, the octagonal Book Cell.


Home, a self-sustained book igloo designed by Colombian artist Miler Lagos.


A building made from 7,000 recycled phone books.


The seven-story “Tower of Babel,” masterminded by Marta Minujin and built with 30,000 books donated by readers, libraries and more than 50 embassies.

Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller built this mini house from hundreds of recycled books for Modern Art Oxford and the Fruitmarket Gallery in 2008.


Argument #2, by Tom Bendtsen.


A perfect playhouse in the children’s room of the Iowa City Public Library.


Another gorgeous book fort in the Trondheim library.


We know this one is cheating, but we just couldn’t help it. How cool is the Kansas City Public Library? And this is just their parking garage!
