Wanted: A Functional Bathtub Made of Books


With this special bathtub, you can literally (and literarily, yes!) bathe in books. Built by Vanessa Mancini, the tub “is made entirely out of books which Vanessa cut and fitted together over a metal frame to form a bath of books, which is suspended by four antique bath tub, lion-shaped feet. She intends to later cover it in layers of resin and has already applied proper taps and drain, so that it will be a utilizable, functional bath at all effects.” Questions of mold aside, isn’t this just exactly what you’ve always wanted? Though we’re not sure the status of the piece, we will definitely be keeping an eye out for it and for more of Mancini’s work in the future. [via BoingBoing]
