Item Details

Here are projects for the #147;pages": 40 innovative book-making ideas using recycled and green materials! More than just earth-friendly, they're also beautiful, clever, and witty, stitched with traditional binding techniques.nbsp; Egg cartons, wood, beer cans, and cassette tapes morph into covers, while brown bags, coffee filters, and discarded newspapers are transformed into pages. Create a boxed set of cereal box books, an exposed stitch sketchbook out of cardboard and remnants, and even a faux leather journal made from teabags. In addition to how-to drawings, close-up detail photographs, and simple stitch diagrams, a gallery of eco-books from an international roster of artists provides inspiration.nbsp; nbsp;

yes, I REALLY am going to use a book made of egg cartons. Try using your imagination for once.

Is anyone really going to use a book made out of egg cartons?

Great ideas for creating handmade books.

The projects described in this book are not for the average punter! The projects look very professional.
I like the idea behind this American book though, recycling all the paper (and some non-paper such as mouse pads) products we come across in our daily lives - into books.

"700 pounds of paper? Are you surprised to learn that the average person consumes approximately that much paper a year?" - page 6.
