Unleash your imagination and transform your old books
A book can come to the end of its life. Some books lose relevance over time and are left neglected on the bottom shelf or packed away in a box that sits forgotten in the attic. These dusty and neglected volumes become the protagonists of Clare Youngs’s projects, turning into authentic artworks. If you have piled up old books in your attic, you don’t want to throw them away, and you’re having a hard time finding new ideas for unique presents and home decorations, this is the solution for you. In this book you will discover 35 inspiring projects, complete with detailed instructions and suitable for experienced crafters and those new to the world of book art. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to repurpose pages into items that will make great gifts or look wonderful in your home. Clare Youngs shows you how to cut and glue splendid scenes such as delicate paper mushrooms and ferns, a fairy-tale castle, and winter reindeer. You’ll also learn how to make greeting cards, a botanical print lampshade, and hanging birds. All the projects have helpful step-by-step instructions and illustrations so all you need are a few old books and you’re ready to begin.
A complete guide that teaches you how to give new life to your beloved books, so that they can tell a thousand new stories beyond the written page.
