Over the Counter #9

Catching my eye this week as it passed over my library counter and under my scanner was re-bound by Jeannine Stein. Well of course it caught my eye - it's a book about making books! Some really, really clever ideas inside this one.

From the publisher Quarry Books:

"Re-Bound is a beautiful book on bookbinding with a fun green twist-all the projects use recycled and upcycled materials. This book shows you how to take everyday materials from around the house, flea markets, thrift stores, and hardware stores and turn them into clever and eye-catching hand-made books.

(Over the Counter is a new feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)

I am fascinated by the world of bookbinding--this one's for me! Thanks for the heads up. :)

The part that caught my eye was the bit about sadly not being able to read everything one wants to read! true, very very sadly true.
