therecycledlibrary's Shop Announcement

I have a deep love for books: collecting, reading, and creating my own. I create handmade, one of a kind books, envelopes and maps made from recycled and reused materials.

My materials are humble - most are reclaimed from old library bookshelves, yard sales, and my neighbors recycle bins. I try to help the planet while at the same time giving old items, images and text a new life and purpose.

All journals are made completely by hand, using traditional book making tools and techniques. Keep in mind that due to the recycled nature of the maps and book pages I use, there are at times slight wrinkles or imperfections in the paper. I count that as part of the charm :)

So write more letters, read more books, and create more beauty in the world!
