10 unique ways to create book inspired images from an expert Bookstagrammer

It’s time to open the book on your creativity and get creative with your next photo. Books can inspire us with their physical form or with the stories inside. With a creative medium like books to work with the possibilities are endless!

There are many Instagram accounts, or 'bookstagrams' as they are known, dedicated to reviewing and showcasing books and their contents in all their glory. We are honoured to have expert Bookstagrammer Bronte from @frombeewithlove as our muse showing us some great starting points to get creative with books. Here are 10 unique ideas for getting inspired for your next book themed photo.

1. Use books as your backdrops

2. Set your pages free

3. Be inspired by the cover art

4. …Or create your own book cover

5. Let your body become the book

6. …Or just rest it on them

7. Find inventive ways to use the pages

8. Dress up as characters from your favourite book

9. Use the shape of books to tell their own story

10. Open the book to reveal what’s inside
