At ALA in June, I wandered past a cool exhibitor & very friendly entrepreneur of Rebound Designs – Caitlin Phillips. Caitlin takes old books and creates beautiful and useful art from them! Her main creations are these way cool book purses but she also creates wallets, and Naughty Bits Pins, and more. You can read or listen to the NPR interview about how she got this idea and how she creates these artful reused book purses. Purchase one of Caitlin’s pieces from etsy - or if you are in the DC area, she is at Eastern Market in DC most weekends. Also follow her on twitter @bookgrrl to hear what her latest creation may be.
