By Book Spine Poetry

Book spine poetry is a type of “found” poetry, as it uses pre-written words to create a poem. Most don’t rhyme or fit a particular poetic structure. It’s just a stack of books, artfully arranged, where each title is a line in the poem. These poems can be any length or style, or evoke any emotion. The point is to be creative with what you have and enjoy the experience.
