Recycled books...




In an effort to satisfy my effort to recycle I am beginning a line of recycled books using covers from old interesting books no longer being read, and notebooks filled with recycled paper. As a teacher and artist I have access to so much paper that needs to be recycled. It's one of my joys to turn old things into something useful and attractive!

This book shown above will not be listed in my etsy shop, but will be given as a gift! The owl illustration on the cover is hand drawn and cut by me using my own painted paste paper. The endpapers are the same paper as the owl. The signatures are drawing paper, each wrapped in a red coordinating decorative paper. Keep watch - I'll be listing recycled books and notebooks soon on etsy and will still be offering my custom journals and albums using the same fine papers for writing, painting, and scrapbooking - all acid free as always!
