What He Does With Printer Paper And A Leather Coat Is So Cool And Easy!

On Viral Nova, Grace writes about cute animals. She also writes for design42day.com, and thoroughly enjoys puns - the good kind or the bad kind. She's not picky when it comes to puns. She's studied English, music, film, and other creative fields. In her spare time she's reading or writing creative nonfiction, arranging songs, or writing jokes just in case she some day decides to try stand up comedy.

Novels used to be something you held in your hands, smelled, and flipped through with admiration. Before Kindles, before audiobooks, and even before mass production came along, each one was carefully and thoughtfully pieced together as if it were an actual work of art. It's a shame that this craft has fallen to the wayside. Books are meant to be cherished -- now we have to preserve battery power to be able to enjoy them.

But what if you could help bring back this art form yourself?

It's a lot easier than you think!

With some practice and tweaking, you could make some very high-quality page-turners. Play with different materials, buy your favorite paperback and give it a makeover, and spend time with your project! Reading or writing the contents will be so much more personal and meaningful after you've made the object with your own two hands.
