This Guy Turns A Pile Of Books Into Instagram Art And The Internet Can’t Get Enough

SHARE

In a world where Amazon rules the world of book and where everyone is reading things on their tablets, it’s nice to see someone who still appreciates the hard copies. Meet James Trevino, who is a self-proclaimed “Bookstagrammer.”

He arranges his wide library of books and makes beautiful art for his Instagram following. He’s been blowing up getting all the likes on these interesting takes on art. He spoke with Business Insider saying:

“I had this idea a while back to do the Deathly Hallows symbol from Harry Potter, and basically it is a big, big triangle, and in the middle of it, there is basically a vertical line. And I was supposed to be that vertical line, and I was just too big to fit. That was taken in two parts, like one was me alone, and the other one was the triangle, and with the editing and everything it took about six hours total.”

Hailing from Romania, Trevino has over 1,000 books in his arsenal and I don’t think he’s stopping anytime soon. Take a look below at some of our favorites!

What is your favorite emoji? Comment down bellow. πŸ“š Okay, I know, I know: James, why would you make a post about emojis? Did you run out of ideas? First of all, I feel offended that my imaginary self would even ask that! Second… er… maybe? Nah, but I wanted to make a post about this forever because I use emojis so much! I know some people think they are a scourge on society, but I am grateful they exist because they save me from a lot of situations where I don't know what to say or I am just too lazy to type long answers! Bless you, emoji keyboard! πŸ“š Hope you Monday was awesome! Peace out! πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ #mondaymotivation #emoji #emojis #bookstagram #bookporn #books #ootd #poetry #writing #theartofslowliving #bookart #akas_khoone #ΠΊΠ½ΠΈΠ³ΠΈ #edebiyat #bookgasm #totalbooknerd #potterhead #becauseofreading #ilovebooks #smile #chico #smiles #artshub #art #seekinspirecreate #nothingisordinary #unitedbookstagram #lifestyleblogger #vscocool

Who is your favorite Shadowhunters character? What do you like about them? πŸ“š Steles at the ready and happy Sunday peeps! How are you today? So, regarding the qotd, I think I will go with Simon or Izzy, probably because they are both funny badasses?πŸ˜‚ πŸ“š On another topic, this is, as you can see, another addition to my Symbols series (I already did Ying-Yang, The Deathly Hallows and Pokemon). What would you guys like to see next? Give me ideas, please! πŸ“š Also, super random, but I was just thinking what if @cassieclare1 would see this. I would… die.πŸ˜†πŸ™ˆ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ #shadowhunters #bookblogger #tmi #themortalinstruments #cassandraclare #malec #bookblog #claryfray #yalit #jacewayland #aleclightwood #simonlewis #izzylightwood #magnusbane #igbooks #igreads #clace #bookstagram #book #goodreads #reading #booknerds #tattoos #bookstagramtopasja #artistsoninstagram #sundayfunday #creativegrammer #kitapaşkΔ± #writerscommunity @thepageswelove @shadowhunterstv

Who is your favorite Hogwarts teacher? πŸ“š #ad Why another Harry Potter themed pic you ask? Well, first of all, you can never have too many HP themed pics! Second, I just wanted to show off this awesome Quidditch hoodie the guys at @funidelia sent me. WHO DA CAPTAIN??? JAMES DA CAPTAIN! As for my favorite teacher: I would love to learn from Fake Moody (just cuz I am evilπŸ‘Ώ) but from a reader's standpoint no one beats McGonagall. πŸ“š How is your weekend going, guys? πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ #funidelia #funideliamerchandise #whprelax #rainbow #harrypotter #goodreads #pottermore #kitap #hermionegranger #quidditch #dracomalfoy #ronweasley #bookish #book #bookstagram #bookworm #myeverydaymagic #seekthesimplicity #lecture #libro #livro #voldemort #hogwarts #hogwartsismyhome #writing #mystyle #outfitoftheday #igreads #igbooks

What position would you play in your Hogwarts Quidditch team? πŸ“š I would definitely be a Seeker. As you can see, I have mad skillz, yo! Actually, I would probably not play at all cuz I have issues with heights… I mean, just the idea of being suspended up there, with my ass on a stick is insane to me… oops, that came out wrong, but you know what I mean!πŸ™ˆ #WHPlookup πŸ“š But on a more important note: OMFG, the new Fantastic Beats: The Crimes of Grindelwald trailer should drop in about 2 hours or so! I need that trailer in my life now!!! πŸ“š How is your weekend going, guys? On a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate your week? Mine was an 8 I think. I read 5 freakin books this past few days, which is insane for my slow reading pace. πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ #quidditch #harrypotter #read #bookart #hogwarts #slytherin #gryffindor #hufflepuff #ravenclaw #goldensnitch #fantasticbeasts #reading #thecrimesofgrindelwald #fantasticbeaststhecrimesofgrindelwald #grindelwald #dumbledore #newtscamander #book #ζœ¬γ‚Ήγ‚Ώγ‚°γƒ©γƒ  #θͺ­δΊ†#θͺ­ζ›Έθ¨˜ιŒ² #booknerdigans #ler #leer #bookishlove #writersofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #artistsoninstagram

Do you have a driver's license? Do you want to get one? How do you usually travel around? πŸ“š Anyone want a ride in my Bookatti?πŸ‘” Only one in the whole word, totally environment friendly, cool passenger glasses included. πŸ“š This might be the most weird pic I've ever taken. And oh, was it fun. πŸ˜† You know what? Give me a caption for it. Be ruthless.

What is your favorite song at the moment? πŸ“š Just letting you know this pic has nothing to do with the question LMAO. Obviously. But I could make a stretch and say it represents music stardom… it's just that my body can't take any more stretches. My back is already killing me.πŸ˜… I just wanted to touch on the fact that today, in between episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, I kept listening to K-pop (kinda catching up since I haven't done that in a while) – that might have included some embarrassing, totally involuntary dance moves on my way to the gym… and in the gymπŸ˜†πŸ™ˆ. And yep, I have a few songs stuck in my head now (I will actually listen to them while answering comments haha). πŸ“š But how is your week going?

If you could be one fictional character for a day, who would you be and why? πŸ“š Now I know what you think: James, do you want to steal Elsa's place? You know what I answer to that? LET IT GO, LET IT GO! πŸ“š But seriously though, the idea of elemental control is a bit of obsession of mine ever since I was little and watching Shaman King and WITCH. That is why think I would like to be Hao from Shaman King. Yeah, I know, he is evil yada yada, but the Spirit of Fire he controls is so cool!!! πŸ“š Anyway, any weekend plans, guys? I am so ready for the weekend and for this week to be over already! πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ #friyay #superpowers #book #bookstagram #reading #bookworm #armtheanimals #bookishfeatures #pages #bookstagramfeature #frozen #outfitoftheday #flatlayoftheday #flaylay #fashion #selfie #lifestyle #theweekoninstagram #abmlifeisbeautiful #bookworms #readeveryday #ya #escritor #okumak #acolorstory #bookstagramer

What is the scariest situation you've ever been in? And who is your favorite Scooby-Doo character?πŸ‘» πŸ“š So for today's pic I became a member of my all time favorite gang: the Scooby gang! What could be cooler?? And I know it is unpopular, but I used to have a slight crush on Velma as a kid.πŸ™ˆ And this pic was soooo much fun to make! πŸ“š How is your weekend going, guys?

Who is your favorite ACOTAR/SUPERNATURAL character? πŸ“š Happy Wednesday everyone! I decided to make another addition to the angel series. And because every single time I do one of these you guys tell me it is either ACOTAR or Supernatural inspired I decided to go with the flow and talk about those two very different beasts. Are y'all happy now?πŸ˜‚ πŸ“š On a different note, I got sunburnt to a crisp yesterday (yes, this pic was obviously taken beforehand). So much so that I can't put any freakin' clothes on me. It is bloody ridiculous. Any ideas how to make it all go away faster? πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ #acotar #bookcommunity #supernaturalfamily #bookaddict #supernatural #reader #castiel #rhysand #acourtofthornsandroses #yafiction #nightcourt #sarahjmaas #spnfamily #samwinchester #musings #contemporaryart #deanwinchester #spnfandom #destiel #leseratte #wordporn #supernaturalfandom #reading #bookworm #read #angels #zen #art_whisper #art_viralπŸ”

How many books have you read so far this year? Are you ahead/behind your reading challenge? πŸ“š Half-year check up! I remember asking this question a few months ago (I think) and that back then I was sooo behind. I am still behind, but the situation definitely got better (reading slump – hope I never see your ugly face again!). I am around 25-30 books so far and seeing how I had a slow start I think that is pretty decent. I probably (for sure) won't meet my 100 books goal for the year, but oh well. πŸ“š Also, haven't posted a proper shelfie in a while so here you go. Do you like it? (yeah, it is still a very impractical shelf arrangement!πŸ˜†) πŸ“š Hope your week is going well!

Who is your favorite Lord of the Rings/Tolkien character? πŸ“š One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. πŸ“š If you have been here long enough you know about my obsession with everything Tolkien. The LOTR movies are my favorite movies of all time by far and I've watched them so many times I can literally quote them by heart (I did that with my brother when we watched Fellowship of the Ring recently for almost 20 minutes before he asked me to stop LMAO). πŸ“š I've read almost everything Tolkien wrote. I still have some of the History of Middle Earth series left and Unfinished Tales (which I just started today). My favorite Tolkien book is The Silmarillion (which I would place as my favorite book ever, tied with Harry Potter 6). As for favorite Tolkien character I will go with Feanor when we are talking the whole Tolkienverse and Arwen if we talk LOTR. OMG, I want someone to talk to about this universe nonstop! And can Amazon please hurry up with that series?!! I need something new to obsess over! πŸ“š Also, hope your weekend was great! πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ #lordoftherings #lotr #bΓΌcher #tolkien #本 #θͺ­ζ›Έ #booktography #thehobbit #hobbit #bookporn #jrrtolkien #bookstagram #booknerd #acreativevisual #megustaleer #aragorn #frodo #ΠΊΠ½ΠΈΠΆΠ½Ρ‹ΠΉΡ‡Π΅Ρ€Π²ΡŒ #gandalf #middleearth #instalivre #hobbiton #sundayfunday #writerscommunity #artistsoninstagram

The Cloak of Invisibility, to hide you from your enemies. The Resurrection Stone, to bring back loved ones from the dead. And The Elder Wand, the most powerful wand ever created. Β· Together, they form the Deathly Hallows. Together, they make one the Master of Death. πŸ“š If you could have only one of the three Deathly Hallows, which one would that be and why? πŸ“š I think I would choose The Elder Wand… not because I want to rule the world or something.. πŸ‘Ώ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ #reading #instabook #nerdherd #book #books #bookstagram #bookgram #booklion #amreading #booksarelife #booksofig #harrypotter #deathlyhallows #gryffindor #ravenclaw #pottermore #photooftheday #fromabove #flatlayforever #seekthesimplicity #libro #poetry #writer #kitap #honar_cheshm #lifestyle #artistsoninstagram #theweekoninstagram

What are you currently reading guys? πŸ“š Some books I ordered from eBay still haven't arrived (it's been weeks!😀) so I decided I will start this series about dragons by Licia Troisi (really hope I didn't butcher that name). Any good dragon books you would recommend? Been searching for some. πŸ“š Hope your Monday was great!

If you could witness any event of the past, present or future, what would it be? πŸ“š I think it would be the first contact for me. Meeting alien life for the first time. Be a part of history in the making and watch as a race more evolved than ours decides we are worthy to be noticed. πŸ“š On another note, regarding this pic, that is somewhat Castiel inspired, I just want to say that never in my life have I spent more time editing a single project. It took about 6 hours😰. And you might think: but James, what was so complicated about it? And I say: everything! I think I had over 10 final versions before this one came up and funny thing: this one was half inspiration/half mistake. I guess good things never come from half measures. But either way, another addition to the Angel Series. Hope you guys enjoy it. #whpcolorpop πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ #bookstagram #book #books #reading #read #bibliophile #booklover #bookart #bookblogger #epicreads #bookcollector #moodygrams #surrealism #theweekoninstagram #artshub #fromabove #fromwhereistand #supernatural #postitforaesthetic #kitap #youngadult #angel #creartmood #Ps_WarmTones #Lr_People #enter_imagination #thegraphicspr0ject #artistry_vision #pr0ject_uno @instagram @photoshop @moodygrams @edit_grams @manipulation.clan @visual_creatorz

What is your favorite Pirates of the Caribbean movie and/or character? πŸ“š Ok so, full disclosure, I am a bit obsessed with Pirates of the Caribbean. And by a bit I mean a lot! I love those movies so much! They just make me want to jump from my bed and go travel the seven seas. Gosh, the pure joy… I can't even explain. Just hearing the soundtrack brings a smile to my face. You know what I mean? πŸ“š Anyway, for the reasons above I think this is my favorite pic of anything I've ever posted. As arrogant as that might sound, I am so proud of how it turned out!

What is your favorite way to relax? πŸ“š Happy Sunday, peeps! How was your weekend? I was here, doing some Yoga. My second name is YogaMaster, you know?😏 For real though, I think if I ever did Yoga I would end up breaking my neck. Or worse.πŸ™ˆ I don't know how people do it. Taking this pic was hard enough. Me no flexible man! πŸ“š So instead I choose my comfy chair with my cats around and a book or just music, like the old cat lady that I am.πŸ‘΅πŸ˜½ #whpcolorpop πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ #sundayfunday #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogalife #reads #outfitoftheday #lifestyle #bookseverywhere #topcaptures #flatlayforever #kitapkurdu #bookish #ilovebooks #bookhoarder #prettybooks #yareads #bookblog #bookworm #seekthesimplicity #bΓΌcherwurm #balance #poetry #instawriter #Lr_People

What is your morning treat? Coffee, tea (whiskey cuz Monday)?πŸ˜‚ πŸ“š As you can see I just woke up in my highly (un)comfortable bed and I am having my strong, black as my soul, coffee. Anyone want to join me?😏 As some of you might know, I am pretty much a pretentious f**k when it comes to coffee.πŸ˜‚ It has to be black, simple and home brewed. If not you have a very unhappy James and an unhappy James is seriously not something you would want (a normal James is difficult enough to handle anywayπŸ˜‚). πŸ“š But yeah, I hope you Monday was great, guys! πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ πŸ“‘ #mondaymotivation #book #mondaymorning #mondays #bookstagram #bookaholic #bedroomdecor #booksonbooks #coffeeholic #coffeelover #coffeetime #coffee #vscobooks #bookishfeatures #thepursuitofjoyproject #theeverydayproject #limitbeauty #thatsdarling #abmlifeisbeautiful #bookalicious #ya #wordgasm #creativewriting #kitaplΔ±k #μ±… #ΠΊΠ½ΠΈΠ³Π° #ΠΊΠ½ΠΈΠ³ΠΈ #chilling #ig_photooftheday
