Creator, Caitlin, has been making beautiful book purses for five years and goes out of her way to breathe new life into books that have been damaged or long forgotten and discarded by their owners. What a wonderful way to carry a little of one's book-loving heart around with them and what an incredible conversation piece!
Caitlin has recently been displaying her gorgeous Nancy Drew book purses in her Artomatic 2009 exhibit and is now putting some of her wonderful pieces up for sale. I loved the colours of the cotton fabric lining and beading as well as the pretty cover of The Mystery at Lilac Inn best of all.
If a book purse tickles your fancy, you can see her current items for sale at her Etsy shop.
