Craft Project Books


With a few basic supplies and a vivid imagination, a book can easily be transformed into a work of art. That's why Powell's is offering up its castaways — books too old, too worn, or too lackluster to be sold for content alone, but too craft-worthy to be dismissed altogether — in the hopes that our customers will find a way to give them new life. For $5 or less, one of these books could be yours — to alter, collage, cut, embellish, fold, glue, paint, re-bind, sew, stamp, stencil... whatever your heart desires! Pair one (or five or 20) of our Craft Project Books with any of the following crafty titles and you're well on your way to a recycled masterpiece!

There are 10 books in this aisle.
