Announcement   OLD COVERS FOR NEW IDEAS

Journals, sketch books, water-color books, and photo albums made from RE-PURPOSED HARDCOVER BOOKS recently featured in Cloth Paper Scissor's PAGES Magazine.




The idea to create functional craft by re-purposing books developed from the vision of books as objects of art in and of themselves. Discarded books have become an occasion for implementing the artist’s ten years of bookmaking experience.

The books looking for new purposes and homes come from libraries, sales, and even recycle centers. Each unique journal lends a literary element to any project or gift. If you haven’t found the perfect cover for the booklover in your life (yourself included!) the artist is happy to create a journal for you—just contact her with your ideas about cover theme, size, and/or paper and she will get started!

Alma Baumwoll has been creating handmade functional art for over ten years, and is happy to converse with anyone interested in books (and even a few who aren’t!).

I just smiled when I opened this. It came so quickly; it's very well made and so very creative and unusual. This one is for my sister who loves the environment, books and journaling. Thank you so much!

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
I prefer PayPal transactions, but accept money orders as well. I ship after full payment has been received, and can wrap a gift item on request.
Shipping
I ship all my own products protectively wrapped in envelopes via regular mail. For this reason, it is less expensive to ship more items, so if you are ordering more than two items to be shipped to the same location, I will find the cheapest way to ship to you. I can arrange for additional shipping needs at the request of the buyer. Arrival time will depend on your location, but in general items should arrive in about 1 week.
Refunds and Exchanges
If for some reason you are unsatisfied with the product, and it has not been used, the item can be returned for a refund of the purchase price. Damaged items may be able to be repaired on a customer-by-customer basis.
Additional policies and FAQs
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about an order you have placed or one you are considering.
