Re-Bound: Creating Handmade Books from Recycled and Repurposed Materials

Re-Bound: Creating Handmade Books from Recycled and Repurposed Materials

I love reading. It is one of my favorite things to do. I especially love reading old weathered books. I don’t know why I prefer them broken in, but it just adds to my reading experience. Lately I have been trying to find books that will teach me what I can use at home to make myself and my home greener. While typing recycled into my search box Re-Bound: Creating Handmade Books from Recycled and Repurposed Materials came up somewhere towards the end of my page. This can take my love of reading even further. This is an excellent way to share your love of reading with others or make the perfect gift for someone even fix a book that may have been damaged.

Re-Bound is a beautiful book on bookbinding with a fun green twist-all the projects use recycled and upcycled materials. This book shows you how to take everyday materials from around the house, flea markets, thrift stores, and hardware stores and turn them into clever and eye-catching hand-made books.

Benefits of Fairy Tales

Young children are preoccupied with fantasy and make believe. It’s normal and can be a lot of fun. Reading fairy tales allows children to imagine different worlds and be exposed to varying degrees of idealization. With proper guidance, such fantastical stories can offer life lessons and social truths that might otherwise not interest the young mind. For example, in this retelling of The Little Mermaid, the plan to marry the prince does not work out. However, the sea world offers her a welcoming refuge back. Sometimes, the bigger love is home.

Made Of / Made In

The Little Mermaid is made with paper from sustainable sources and printed using child-safe, non-toxic inks. Meets or exceeds new US children’s safety laws.
