I've knit a few bookshelves- my own, my grandmother's, Osama Bin Laden's, and what I imagine to be Donald Trump's. They are portraits, made at a time when the digital book can conceal one's personal library from prying eyes.
Osama Bin Laden's book titles are publicly available online. I couldn't find any images of Trump's bookshelves, so I just stacked them with his own titles and a couple of Hitler books that he's talked about.
My grandmother, for the record, does not actually have vases on her bookshelves.
