Say what you will about the convenience of e-readers—in my opinion, nothing could ever replace the feel of a real book. Fellow bibliophiles, take note: our May release The Repurposed Library offers a creative antidote to the digital age. Author and artist Lisa Occhipinti rescues old and orphaned books, transforming their careworn hardcovers and yellowed pages into stylish home decor and objets d'art. Her collection of 33 projects includes a Literary Lampshade, a Story Time Clock, and Narrative Vases (click here for an image gallery).
To mark the launch of The Repurposed Library, STC Craft is proud to present a beautiful trailer produced by Lisa herself. Enjoy this peek inside her studio; hopefully you'll be inspired to think outside the bookshelf and breathe new life into a book of your own.
