How to Make Books: Fold, Cut & Stitch Your Way to a One-Of-A-Kind Book Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this digital age, the fate of physical books remains in question. Even the concept of curling up with a good book conjures new images. But there remains a sensory thrill to physical booksandmdash;to seeing and feeling them, to turning their pagesandmdash;that makes many of us value them even more as digital reading grows in popularity. In Novel Living, artist Lisa Occhipinti celebrates her love for physical books by presenting us with her unique ideas for collecting and displaying them, for conserving and preserving them, and for crafting with them. Guided by Occhipintiandrsquo;s artful eye, youandrsquo;ll be inspired to build and display collections based on your personal passions and to use books for crafting, either by deconstructing or by copying favorite elements. Amazingly, most of the projectsandmdash;ranging from easy shelving to a headboard constructed of book spines to napkins composed of scans of favorite text passages from booksandmdash;require no special skills or supplies.

Synopsis:

'
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 For these projects, Lisa Occhipinti rescues and repurposes orphaned and outdated books from flea markets and library sales and turns them into new art objects and practical items for the home.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.
