Coronavirus lockdown has been a major push for people to embrace a lot of creative activities and one of them definitely are home decor hacks.
And in another recent incident, a home decor video created with books has gone viral only to leave book lovers fuming. No, it’s not another artsy way to show off your book collection and adding lights on them. Something, well, a little odd!
The TikTok video shows a woman coating three books with black and white paints, drying them and then varnishing at the end. At the end she piles the three books with alternating black&white colours with words ‘Chanel’, ‘Dior’ and ‘Louis Vuitton’ written on them, placing a glass-like structure on top of the stack.
The video was shared with book designer, Ryan Hammond, who said, “Help. Have just come across this horror on TikTok and had to share with all of you book people because a little bit of me died inside.”

The viral hack left netizens extremely vexed, with most of them expressing their disturbance at this sight.
I’d watch a horror film where she tried this with an ancient arcane cursed book and suffers the consequences…

For what purpose? For what goal is this atrocity taking place?
