Publisher Comments:

'\'
We all love to read and learn from books, but The Repurposed Library takes our passion even further, presenting us with 33 projects to make--quite literally--out of books. For these projects, Lisa Occhipinti rescues and repurposes orphaned and outdated books from flea markets and library sales and turns them into new art objects and practical items for the home. Her creations range from artfully constructed mobiles, wreaths, and vases, to functional items like shelves, storage boxes, and even a Kindle \\\"keeper\\\" for those who want to replicate the sensation of holding a \\\"real\\\" book while reading from an e-reader. Projects utilize every imaginable part of a book--from hardback cover to individual pages--and are a DIY celebration of a new way to view a book\\\'s potential.

Synopsis:

Revealing how to "alter" treasured books through collage, paint, layering, sewing and more, this title details the creative processes behind the craft and shows how artists can come together to select a topic, set up a project and ultimately publish or display their finished collaborative work.

Synopsis:

This exciting guide explores the creative processes behind altered books when artists make their own distinctive mark on an already published work and collaborative journals in which many artists come together to create a unique single work.

Synopsis:

Accessible, step-by-step projects will appeal to general book artists at any skill level.
