Iconic Book Covers line the Halls of a High School

What better way to encourage reading, than by covering the hallways with book covers. At  Mundelein High School, in Chicago, Illinois, the hallways of their English department have been transformed into iconic book covers. The book covers are right near the classroom doors,  inspiring students to pick up a book.

This transformation happened over the Christmas break, just in time for the students to return to school in a new year, and to a new hallway. The project was designed by Visual Image Photography, using vinyl murals to turn the walls into big books. Some of the books that were chosen, as pictured above are All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. Others include Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Bear Town by Fredrik Backman, and Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. These books are a good mix of classic and modern literature that hopes to inspire students to read books from the past and present.

Based on the pictures, the designers did an amazing job on these murals. Students and teachers alike will definitely be enjoying them, prompting more visits to the library this year. Anything to get more people reading is a great thing, and these stunning hallways just might inspire other schools to do the same.
