Sir, you are a freakin' hero right now! Even iffen ya ain't got nothin. . .I have hope. And true happiness, my friend, rests in the potential, the chance that just maybe I could have a grand scale creative weekend.

It doesn't bother him as much as when I wanted to paint tumbleweeds (we used to live in Arizona) and cover the entire ceiling with them. He's only told me absolutely "no" twice since we've been together. The first time was in regards to the tumbleweed project and the second was in regards to adopting a German Shepherd. <--Kyoshiro and I met him at the back door one sunny summer afternoon, but I always knew the tumbleweeds would be crossing the line.

I'm about to post up some pics of previous weekend projects.

I appreciate the offer, but I need hundreds of them. I'm either going to have to find someone with a truckload or two they need to unload or hit up a dying library, etc. I could collect slowly over time, but the problem is I'm not much of a slowly over time kinda person.

Hahahaha.. My gramps house used to have this funny wallpaper that was a bunch of old news clippings from the 40's. He was eccentric and an inventor and liked stuff like that. Looks cool, especially the pterodactal

Try making you a small wooden frame for the arch, 'notch' the books in the arch and glue em into place.

Found:

"Emo is a somewhat ambiguous, controversial slang term[1] most frequently used to describe a fashion or subculture which is usually defined to have roots in punk fashion and subculture[2], as well as some attributes of gothic fashion and subculture.[3]. It is loosely defined, and its meaning varies by region, but most definitions share a number of similarities.[1]"

~In Wikipedia, of course. I suppose this works since I like to describe the house decor as southern-squalid-monastery-ish meets museum-ish tinged by greek revival, primitivism and turn of the century American gothic .

I hadn't thought about making notches. . .I guess making multiple rows would be the way to go. I'd originally thought to ask my dad to weld some rebar (sp?) to a thin sheet of metal. The books would have sat on the base (weighing it down) and then I could have drilled holes in the books and slipped them over the rebar. I guess I could make some kind of slip on plate or platform to hold the wooden frames. Originally, I'd wanted it to look like a miniature mosque (with an actual dome vs. simple arch), but I think it might actually be beyond what I can manage. Anyway, thanks for the suggestion Ulric!
