An elaborate project Charles Faudree did for a Jamaican Villa. All books are covered with coral Wallpaper to achieve a decorative and unified look. With coral being a classic and versatile coastal theme motif, there are other people who covered books with coral paper.

Here is an easy way how you can achieve this unified look for your books. Simply wrap your books with craft paper then add the Coral Images to the spine of each book, as seen at All About Vignettes. You could also use copies of the same image, depending on the look you want.

The coral images were given a top coat with Mod Podge to seal them.

You can also bind the entire book with coral paper (or any decorative paper). Besides Wallpaper, you could use Free Printables, Wrapping Paper or even Coastal Fabric. Original source no longer available.
