New Pick of the Week!

Playing with Books: The Art of Upcycling, Deconstructing, and Reimagining the Book by Jason Thompson
In these pages, Jason Thompson has curated an extensive and artistic range of both achievable upcycled crafts made from books and book pages and an amazing gallery that contains thought-provoking and beautiful works that transform books into art. The content encompasses a wide range of techniques and step-by-step projects that deconstruct and rebuild books and their parts into unique upcycled objects. The book combines in equal measure bookbinding, woodworking, paper crafting, origami, and textiles and decorative arts techniques, along with a healthy dose of experimentation and fun. The beautiful high-end presentation and stunning photography make this book a delightful, must-have volume for any book-loving artist or art-loving book collector.

About the Author:  Jason Thompson is the founder of Rag & Bone Bindery in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, a bookbinding studio dedicated to creating unique hand-bound books and albums for gift and stationery industries.
