Dispatches from the Digital Revolution

If you can’t read print books, why not wear them (or use them as decorations)?

Sometimes we are all so entrenched in the digital world that we lose touch with our “print” origins. A while back, I wrote a post highlighting some unconventional uses for repurposing print publications.

I thought it would be fun to take another look at some of the ways a few crafty DIYers are keeping the spirit of books alive  (even if outside the normal printed form!).
