I love it when people find projects on my blog and add their own special twist. Rebecca saw my old living room Thatched Wall, merged it with another amazing idea, and took it to a new level. “I had one of those SHAZAM moments – I’m a librarian, I loves me some books, and I can totally do your thatching, but with enlarged manga that I also love!”
Japanese comics never looked so good! Rebecca used a regular black and white copy machine to individually photocopy each page, then adhered them to the wall with painter’s tape. The end result is impressive, inexpensive and apartment-friendly. I love how the colorful characters on the shelves set off the black and white pattern. Makes me want to take a stab at a wall of coloring book pages!
* As Naomi pointed out in her comment, these are not Japanese comics; Rebecca reports the pages were sourced from graphic novels. (As you can tell, I have much to learn!)
Rebecca’s bathroom wall came out so well she repeated the process in her living room too — honestly, guys, How cool is that?!
Kudos to Rebecca!!!
