ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
It is the little things like this purse that make me wish I was a girl. This and shoes. Men’s shoes are so gottam boring.
I want an OED manbag.
@#1- You could use them as little boxes perhaps. They sell book-boxes at Hobby Lobby which are cool, but not as cute as these.
I bought a book purse from Rebound designs after I saw them on BB way back: http://www.boingboing.net/2005/09/23/custom-purses-made-f.html Its super cute but falling apart after carrying it only a few times. Maybe collaging a cigar box would be a better option? Or maybe thats just the crafter in me ;)
Cute idea, but for over 1k I think if I want one I’ll just whip out the embroidery thread and buy a purse form.
…besides she probably doesn’t have one for Blood Meridian, The Painted Bird, or Place of Dead Roads anyway :(
I’ve seen book-purses before, but this one takes the cake since it’s not actually a book. My problem with other book-purses is that the text block is destroyed! (Who DOES that to Nancy Drew?!) I’ll be needing a quarto, though — I carry too much stuff!
