I have been staring at a few books that just don’t make sense for quite some time now. They aren’t Quantum Physics or anything, just mismatched craziness. The problem is I can’t throw them out. One is a Barbie chronicle that any girl who grew up with Barbies would cherish like their first born….maybe. One is a St. Louis landmark book, and one is a Ripley’s believe it or not book with a super fancy 3-d cover. None of them are very “pretty” per say but I love looking through their pages and learning.
You caught a glimpse of them in this post. And I was so embarrassed of their mis-matchedness that I actually hid them in this post.
I finally decided to do something about it.
Super fast, super easy project comin atcha… You want to know how easy this was?
I walked downstairs and dug out some pretty scrapbook paper and the I just made simple bookcovers. Twenty minutes tops.
Now I can just sit and stare at my pretty books.
Which brings me to my next point…I am so happy that publishers have started making book covers almost art-like. All of the books I have bought recently are gorgeous enough on their own I will never have to wallpaper books again. I’m not hating on Barbie and Mr. Ripley, ok maybe I am. Have you bought any pretty books lately? Ever dressed up your library?
