Hip Journals Made of Discarded Books

This one goes out to all of you bibliophiles out there. This weekend I had the amazing experience of going to the Bazaar Bizarre in Boston and came across Ex Libris Anonymous. Everyone can make a journal, but their book journals were by far the coolest I have seen.

Each journal is a one-of-a-kind creation made from an old vintage discarded book. It is gutted out and transformed into a unique journal which contains the essence of the old book by incorporating art, pictures, library cards, etc. into its pages. Some even had inscriptions from the past owners.

This just might be the perfect Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Festivus gift of the season.
