Are you a bibliophile with a penchant for the handmade? Then this post’s for you! My bookish sensibilities are no secret — I always carry a book in my purse, I started my own book club, and recently I’ve been swooning over some repurposed books that may need to make their way into my collection.
It all started when I met Jacob at Maker Faire and completely fell in love with his handmade book journals. He takes the covers of old books and fills them with acid-free paper that’s perfect for journaling or sketching. Then, he intersperses pages from the original book to add a little personality, which makes it so inspiring to use! The book spine-turned-cuff that I bought from him is another item that I always get comments on!
So now that I’m on this repurposed book craze, I thought I’d share with you a few more of my favorite picks from around the interwebs.
Throwing a party soon? or maybe you have a children’s room to decorate? I love this vintage children’s book bunting from Tin Roof Junkerie.
Did you know that the traditional 1st anniversary gift is paper? One of these folded book pieces by Luciana Frigerio may be the perfect gift!
Decorating a room and wanting to add some instant personality? Might I suggest a color coordinated compendium? Decades of Vintage sells books by the color.
We went over to a friend’s house the other night and died laughing when we saw Paul Revere riding a velociraptor. Get unique art printed on old book pages in Collage-O-Rama’s shop.
Want to don something funkier with your everyday office garb? I’m a big fan of bangles. Especially these comic book bracelets from Graphic Novelties.
Starting to think about Fall decorations? I love these book pumpkins from HiButterfly.
