Kelly Taylor makes books from stuff most people could find in their recycling bins. She will be showing her recent work at the Cambridge Mini Maker Faire this Friday.
Here’s a bit of what she says about her bookbinding work:
I make small usable blank books out of random cool stuff: old playing card packets, pictures from magazines, maps, dog food bags, potato chip packets, if it can be glued to cardboard and/or sewn to paper, I will make a book out of it. I use two different binding styles, depending on the materials I have available. I’ll have a number of books in various stages of completion along with samples of finished books and raw materials for experimentation.
You can see more of Kiwi’s Tiny Books over at Etsy.
