There are so very many e-reader covers and sleeves to choose from. There are hard bound leather ones with beautiful quotes. There are handmade knitted ones. There are paper crafted homemade ones. And just when you thought your available options couldn’t possibly grow… I found a sewing pattern by Birdiful Stitches on Etsy…so we can make our very own e-reader sleeve!!! How lovely is that? And while I have not sewn anything in many years, I am going to be brave and try it! Wish me luck! When I finish it I will post some pictures and maybe even make a give-away sleeve for my readers! Until then, you can get this easy-to-make e-reader cover pattern for yourself here. If you do make one, please share the photos with me! I’d love to see what you come up with! Oooooh! This could be a great holiday gift! =) Personalized e-reader covers!...

It’s raining books

Oct 01

Once upon a time in a land far, far away…a quaint Swiss town close to France, in a charming place called Romainmôtier there was a used book fair and a book-loving artist named Jan Reymond. Jan wanted to ‘give the unsold books a last life before they were thrown away. So he decided to create artistic works throughout his town following each book fair to do just this.

Let me share from newest to oldest! 2010 You can see more of this piece here… 2009 2008 2007 it’s raining books!, originally uploaded by overthemoon. 2006 2005 The brilliant artist and a map of where his town is… I can’t wait to see what Jan comes up with next year!
