THE REPURPOSED LIBRARY
33 Craft Projects That Give Old Books New Life
by Lisa Occhipinti
STC Craft | A Melanie Falick Book
In The Repurposed Library, designer & mixed media artist Lisa Occhipinti rescues "orphaned" books, transforming them into handmade home decor and objets d'art.
Design fiends, DIYers, bibliophiles, and creative thinkers will appreciate Occhipinti's unique art-meets-craft aesthetic. Projects range from decorative accents, such as a winsome mobile and a quilt sewn from loose pages, to practical items, such as the "bestseller bookshelf".
Featuring hand-drawn illustrations, straightforward instructions, and luminous photography, The Repurposed Library celebrates the infinite possibilities books have to offer.

Sentayehu Teshale is a true craftsman. One of my workshop students, Mulugeta Gebrekidan, came up with the idea to film him at work. Sometimes you can see Sentayehu working in public around Addis Ababa.
