About

Decorative books and decor -- creating beautiful bookshelves with decorative books, book page letters, and all manners of bookish decor

I've always loved everything about books -- the textures, smell, words, and colors. I have fond childhood memories of hunkering down under the covers of my bed, flashlight in hand, enjoying a new adventure, mystery, or classic book. I loved reading everything....from Jane Eyre to Judy Bloom :-). Reading has always given me great pleasure and has recharged my soul in a way nothing else can. So it's no surprise to me that I would gravitate toward books as I embark on this new creative pursuit.

My hope is to encourage everyone to cherish old books and to showcase them as part of their decor. My custom book covers, which come in a variety of fun colors and patterns, will instantly transform your bookshelf. Beautiful interior design doesn't have to be expensive and these decorative dust jackets give a new life to books, both old and new. And, the best news....no books are harmed in this process!

The newest addition to my line are book page letters. Wood letters are embellished with rolled book pages....taken from new and vintage books. These letters look great sitting on a bookshelf (alongside fun decorative books, of course) and they can also be hung on a wall. Perfect, unique gift for that book lover of yours!

Thanks for browsing my shop and supporting my love of books and beautiful decor!

Frequently asked questions
Product Details

Book sets include the specified number of books along with custom covers. The custom covers are made from heavy satin paper with a thin matte laminate applied for beauty and long-term durability (similar to dust jackets of professional book publishers). The book covers are attached firmly to the books. For my book sets, I use a variety of new modern-day hardcover books and select books randomly based on like sizes. Unless otherwise specified, your books will be selected randomly from the inventory I have on-hand.

Custom Projects

As specified in my listings, there are a number of color combinations standardly offered with many of my book sets. If you want a color combination or design that is different than what is listed, please contact me prior to placing your order. A minimal design fee usually applies for custom work.

Production Time

Standard orders typically take approximately 1-2 weeks for completion. Custom designs and other special orders (certain books, for example) will take longer depending when the books are received.

Shipping

The shipping rate built into the listing is USPS Media Mail, which is the most economical way to ship books. Depending on where you live, media mail can take anywhere from 8-14 business days for arrival. If you need your books sooner (i.e., anything shorter than 2 weeks from your date of order), please contact me prior to placing your order. I offer a variety of upgraded shipping options (USPS Priority Mail and UPS Ground) and am happy to tell you the additional cost of expedited shipping.
