These book page roses are absolutely beautiful, unique pieces of art. They are delicate but still sturdy and substantial, and each one is crafted carefully and thoughtfully. They ship quickly and customer service is outstanding. Thanks again for another great experience at your shop!

My folded book photo holders just got a packaging makeover! This Emma one will be in the shop soon, but there are lots of other amazing book options to browse in the meantime.

Love having baskets of these folded books around the house. Individual ones make great photo holders!

About

"The stories we love best do live in us forever..." —J.K. Rowling

Every once in a while, a customer will look over my array of products and quip, "Wow, you must really hate books!" That couldn't be further from the truth. The magic of reading doesn't come from the paper books are printed on, but from the worlds they contain.

Still, there's something uniquely nostalgic about the smell of an old book, the covers of vintage novels, and the sight of familiar words on a page. I think of this shop as a repository for the memories of those many lives we bibliophiles have lived between the pages of books.

J.H. Tatroe Salvaged Book Goods are truly made from "salvaged" volumes. I choose familiar and well-loved books to make most of my products, rescuing copies from garage sales, flea markets, and thrift stores. Browsing my shop should be akin to stepping into a used bookstore filled only with the most memorable, special books from a lifetime of reading. Take a deep breath, smell the paper, grab a cup of coffee, and sink into a comfortable chair. Everything here is for you. Enjoy it.

    I was the kid who begged the babysitter to please, please just let me sit inside with my book. Now, I'm a little more balanced. I hike and dance and play games and make art... but the books still go all those places with me.
