I’m a little late to the party, but I’ve just discovered @bookbento, a virtual gallery of great books accompanied by still lifes of meaningful objects. I’m excited to make one for THE ADVENT BOX, and I can’t help but imagine artifacts for other books I’m reading. I’ve just started TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY by John le Carré, but so far I think its bento box would have to include a pair of eyeglasses (like George Smiley’s), a cup of tea, a chess piece or two, and a prep-school-style tie. Just for starters!
How about you? Is there a book you’d love to make into a literary Bento Box?
