The merging of art, craft and recycling – designer and artist Derrick Method creates unique ‘bookwork’ furniture from unlikely raw materials – reclaimed and discarded library books.

Like many of Method’s pieces, the chandelier (pictured above), and the Shaker end table (below), feature outdated and discontinued law journals from the Butler University library located in his hometown, Indianapolis.

Derrick not only does commissioned work, but also handcrafts prints, Shaker boxes, paper and books – some of which he sells via his Etsy storefront.
