One of the interesting vendors I met at the recent ALA meeting in New Orleans was Caitlin Phillips from Rebound Designs, which she bills as a second chance for well-loved books". She transforms old and unwanted literature into one of a kind Book Purses and Paperback Wallets. Have a favorite book? She's got you covered. Check her out here. The picture above is the purse she did for me using the leatherbound tenth anniversary issue of Neil Gaiman's "American Gods". I think it's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
