FLYTIP: BOOKSTAGRAMS

Flytip Logo

This post is inspired by FLYTIP, a bi-weekly feature created by Lonna at FLYLēF to share graphics and advice for blog design and to discuss blog or book related topics. Today’s post is a mixture of design and books because it’s all about Bookstagram! If you’re unfamiliar with the term bookstagram, “Bookstagram” is basically Instagram for books! Scrolling through beautiful pictures of books brings me inexplicable joy! Here are 5 of my favorite #bookstagram photographs:

Pretty Pretty Purple

I chose this picture because the color focus is purple, which is my favorite color. It also includes candles, which I collect as often as I collect books, and Meeko, one of the cutest Disney animal sidekicks!

Think Pink

A spot of tea with a good book is never a bad thing, right?! It doesn’t hurt when the hues of books and mug are complementary AND the combo looks super girly. This is a beautiful staging that just delights my eye so much!! In fact, this picture is one of the pins on my “Books ‘R Beautiful” Pinterest Board.

Ombré + Chevrons

Raise your hands if you love ombré and chevrons! If you were wondering, I have both hands raised in the air because I love them both that much. When a bibliophile like me finds a picture of books with both elements, of course it’s going to be a fave!

A Book Smorgasbord

Who wouldn’t want their very own room full of books?! I might kill someone to get one of those…just kidding y’all! I’m not going to prison for anything or anyone. BUT!! When I buy my own abode, it will definitely have a room to house ALL OF THE BOOKS!!!! This photo is definitely inspiration for my home library vision board, which is why it makes my faves list.

Heart of the Matter

Heart Shaped Books

A photograph of books in the shape of a heart, of course I would LOVE it! I can’t tell what books were included in the picture, but I am inclined to purchase them based solely on their vibrant spines because all I need is book love.
