I have tons and tons of case-bound books with very artistic covers which are packed away in boxes, hidden away in bookcases or that are on shelves or covered up by other books or magazines.
Finding clear space on a shelf or table to stand a book up so that both sides can be seen is a challenge but not so much of a challenge when walls and doors are recruited to make viewing covers possible instead.
Here then is an instructable of how to display the artistic covers of a book when space on a table or shelf is not available for displaying, by using a door or wall to display book covers instead.
Step 1: First, get yourself a case-bound book with some artistic covers
If you are in need of books to use for this project then ask your school or local librarian if she (or he) can provide you with any that have been withdrawn from circulation. Once a book in a library looses favor among readers you can usually get the artwork for free.
Step 2: Get familiar with the parts of a case-bound book
Step 3: Take measurements
1. Width of the book (how much room it takes up on a shelf), excluding the covers, from first page to last page. (for page binding)
2. Page height. (for hanger rod)
3. Page depth. (for hanger rod and loop)
4. Book weight (for sizing hook and line)
