This book is all about creating handmade books from recycled and repurposed materials. From potato chip bags to bath mats to hot water bags, this book shares a variety of techniques for making books from stuff you’d never could have imagined. There’s step by step, easy to follow, instructions with lots of diagram illustrations. In the back there’s a gallery of interesting books made by artists like Elaine Nishizu, who made a series of tiny books from Cracker Jack’s boxes and prizes. I also love Judi Delgado’s beautiful long accordion book made from Monopoly cards and money. Such creative uses for old stuff. Get inspired and pick up a copy here
