Jean Anning's insight:

NOT weird but very wonderful. This is the link to the demonstration site of the FREE Collection Workflow Integration System (CWIS, pronounced see-wis) - open source software designed to assemble, organize, and share collections of data about resources. CWIS conforms to international and academic standards for metadata. CWIS was created to help build collections of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) resources and connect them to NSF's National Science Digital Library and other STEM education channels. However, the software can be (and is being) used for a wide variety of other purposes.

Spineless Classics | Weird and wonderful | Scoop.it
Spineless Classics are whole book on a single sheet, a unique way to enjoy literature in a new way – as wall hanging art.
Jean Anning's insight:

I don't often include sites/products that require payment but this really appeals to me. Would be great on library walls.

10 Unusual Book Designs

10 Unusual Book Designs | Weird and wonderful | Scoop.it

Recently, Flavorwire  found out about a cookbook that you can actually eat after you're done reading the recipes inside, which sounds pretty much like the best idea ever. Inspired by this elegant and — let's face it — kind of crazy book, they went hunting for other wildly unusual book designs, from the edible to the mechanical to the technically alive. Nice designs here - visually engaging and tactile too!
