Our Review

Ever feel guilty when throwing away packaging, paper and others bits and pieces? Now you don't have to. Eco Books by Terry Taylor will teach you how to transform those unwanted items in to handy books.

Including 40 innovative book designs, you'll be raiding the recycling bins in hunt of materials so that you can start binding your own versions. Turn old cereal boxes in to big chunky books, upcycle junk mail in to journals, create a travel diary out of used luggage tags from your holidays, or bind unwanted electronics in to cassette tape and computer disk notebooks. You can also make books from old egg cartons, maps, board games and dozens of other easy to find items.

Save money and save the planet at the same time by binding your own eco books.

Check out a sample project from the book, Cereal Box Books.

You can pick up a copy of the book now from The GMC Group.

Publisher's Description

Here are projects for the ?pages”: 40 innovative book-making ideas using recycled and green materials! More than just earth-friendly, they’re also beautiful, clever, and witty, stitched with traditional binding techniques.  Egg cartons, wood, beer cans, and cassette tapes morph into covers, while brown bags, coffee filters, and discarded newspapers are transformed into pages. Create a boxed set of cereal box books, an exposed stitch sketchbook out of cardboard and remnants, and even a faux leather journal made from teabags.

In addition to how-to drawings, close-up detail photographs, and simple stitch diagrams, a gallery of eco-books from an international roster of artists provides inspiration.
