As I have been posting lately about the book being a site for different arts, I thought I should add a post about Caitlin Phillips' wonderful handbags and clutches -- all produced from books that have seen their day and are now being repurposed and rebound into handbags, providing the owner a with certain glamor-literarista (ok not a word, I know....) look. Have a glance at Rebound Designs to see the full range of offerings. Phillips also has a hilarious corner of the shop called "the naughty bits" where she has excised suggestive lines from romance novels and made them into pins, guarenteed to liven up any boring cocktail party or writer's conference.
Or for the cheeky fashionista copy-editor The Chicago Manual of Style
And for the man in your life....a Bloody Sunrise wallet from a Mickey Spillane Tiger Mann thriller.
