Book Spine Poetry

2 Comments

I came across an interesting method of forming poems, Book Spine Poetry, from The Tripping Pencil (who credits a site called Brain Pickings for the idea).  You take a few books from your collection and arrange the titles to form a poem.

I modified mine slightly to allow one extraneous word at the beginning of each line.  You are encouraged to snap a photo of your stack of books comprising the poem if you choose, though I decided to forgo a photo.

Here is my first effort at Book Spine Poetry:

Underneath The Glass Castle,

Lies Angela’s Ashes.

Somewhere East of Eden,

Residents of The Town and The City

Collect Flowers for Algernon.

  1. Great idea. Brain pickings is the brainchild of Maria Popova. Definitely worth at least following her on Twitter. She’s got a lot of neat things going on.
