HardCoverArt's Shop Announcement


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!).
