Top 10 Bookstagrams


"Wait, Ellie!" you say. "What is this 'bookstagram' you speak of?"

A bookstagram, my soon-to-be-educated friend, is an Instagram page dedicated to photographing BOOKS!!! How cool is that?!?! And here are a few of my favorites.

1. twirlingpages


HOW DOES ALEXANDRA DO IT AGH. Her photos are always so light and airy, and the lighting and colors are just so perfect help.

2. paperfury


I love the variety of Cait's photographs - she does everything from light and pleasantly minimalist to dark and delightfully morbid. (Plus, can we talk for two seconds about the bokeh in that photo???)

3. emdawgreads


Emmanuel's photography is super clever and unique - it's always exciting to look at his page and see what he's come up with next.

4. celinereads


Um can we TALK about the creativity in this photo for a sec?? Celine's photos are always so stunning, with awesome props to add to the vibe of whatever book she's photographing.

5. ifreakinlovebooks


Look at all the gorgeous pops of color in this photo! Carol always features the most awesome books on her account, and I adore the variety of ways she chooses to photograph them.

6. koffeebook


I love Batool's unique approach of photographing coffee with all her favorite reads, and her muted and minimalist feed is absolutely gorgeous to look at.

7. bokhjerte


In sharp contrast to Batool, Marlene's photos are all super bright and highly saturated - but skillfully done, so it doesn't hurt the eyes. Her feed is super bright and fun, and just looking at it gets me ultra excited about reading!

8. person2805


I love her unique approach of photographing the books in front of book pages! She doesn't have nearly as many followers as most of the accounts I've featured thus far, but she definitely deserves them.

9. ursula_uriarte


Ursula is phenomenal with composition and uses props so effectively, it feels like you're looking in on a scene on somebody's desk rather than just looking at a picture of a book on the Internet.

10. foldedpagesdistillery


Look at the gorgeous set-up of this photo! It really gives a sense as to what the book is about.

Let's chat! What are your favorite bookstagrams? Do you have one yourself? (If so, comment your username and I'll be sure to check it out!) Thank you for reading, have a lovely day, and remember that you are all extraordinarily beautiful pickles.

Namarië,
Ellie
