Thank you! The castle was pretty simple. It's just a rectangle with cylinders for the towers. I have a more complex castle, it's "The Kingdom Withing Book Sculpture" posted on here. That one was a pain lol.
You're a writer, so I get where you're coming from. I think of it as giving the books a new life. The majority of the books I use were on the verge of being thrown away before I said that I would take them. People, myself included, fall in love with stories. I try to make a visual representation of the story they love.
Actually I am a book lover. I guess you could say i'm a writer because I am currently writing my first book ever. And I guess salvaging a lost book and turning it into something new is in a way a good thing, but in my opinion the older the book the more memories it has. The older a book gets can tell a greater history than a publication date or the true story/message hidden inside.
