Thinking about a Books Business Idea...
I was wondering if I could get some input on an idea that's been simmering in my head for quite some time.
I am thinking of starting a small business called "book quilts". The idea is to create bed quilts that have class novels printed to cover the entire surface of the quilt. I first came across the idea after a classmate of mine started a company called Postertext - where a novels content is used to form an entire poster. Then I came across Spinlessbooks - more or less the same premise as Postertexts except that the entire novel is used each other - resulting in some rather large posters.
In the meanwhile, I purchased a cheap bed quilt here for the coming winter that happened to be covered in random letters of the alphabet. This got me to thinking - if an entire classic novel can fit on a larger poster, it maybe be possible to have it printed on bed quilts as well. I would just like to get some opinions on the idea. I have the feeling this adds to the bedtime reading atmosphere - literally wrapping yourself up in a favourite book of yours. Please let me know what you think.
I know there may be issues with printing that small (and legibly) on a quilt, but strictly speaking about the idea - what do you think?
I think it would be really cool to have a Hobbit one.
