Bookish purses. Carry your book in a purse made of a book! Retro Grandma turns no-longer-loved book covers into whimsical carry-alls. Prices range from $29.99 to $64.99 on Etsy. (via Jacket Copy)

Tyler Bender notebooks

Books turned notebooks. Tyler Bender Book Co. creates whimsical “new” notebooks from old hardback covers, cereal boxes, T-shirts, and recycled or reclaimed paper. I discovered this upcycling notebook maker at a Downtown Art Walk in Los Angeles, and like the notebooks so much I haven’t actually written in them! Shop for notable notebooks of your own at Etsy.
