Today, I want to explore the book art on Etsy. Enjoy!
Some people think folding or cutting up a book is sacrilege, but when done this way, I have to say, well done, sir, well done.
First, it's a rabbit. Blowing bubble gum. I love the art prints done on old dictionary pages or what have you. Adorable!
I bought a similar journal for my son's girlfriend, as she travels often and I am a huge travel bug. Handmade with pockets, maps, and other cool things, this is way better than a battered notebook in your back pocket.
And finally, a book as a jewelry pendant. You can make your own book necklace by being really meticulous with tiny bits of paper, creating a metal edition as above, or finding book beads and going wild. I quite like this!
Hope you enjoyed the quick tour, and tomorrow I'll be reviewing a book that you might want to enter to win -- so be sure to come back tomorrow!
