I know, if you're like me, you hate the thought of destroying a book because, let's face it, someone worked hard to come up with all those words! But, if you can't save a book, then you can at least turn it into something else and give it a new life.
The book is divided into three sections:
1. Getting Started: Fold, Mutilate, Staple and Spindle (Now that's a section that will send shivers down any good book's spine....)
2. Projects to Play with: Novel Ideas for Artists and Bibliophiles (This is the real "meat" of the book)
3. Gallery: Reimaging the Book (You just won't believe how talented someone can be upcycling a book!)
I especially love the laminated tote bag--what a perfect way to carry your books with you as you search through dusty old bookstores for that one perfect little treasure....
So, here's just a few photos of the book that might inspire you to get busy looking for old books. The ballerina tutu on the front cover just absolutely amazes me:
