Waverly Pinhole Camera by Erin Paysse Vintage Books as Pinhole Cameras

A pinhole camera’s about as simple as it gets: a light-proof box with a tiny hole in one side. We’ve seen them made from oatmeal boxes, potato chip cans, you name it.

We especially love these: Photo buff Erin Paysse turns well-read vintage books into working pinhole cameras so great-looking it’d be enough to just display them on your bookshelf. But the beauty part is that you can load up these literary lookers with 35mm film (color or black and white) and take your own ethereally foggy photos.
