I LOVE books! My life revolves around books and has for a very long time. I work in an elementary school library, I am an avid reader, AND I create art using books!!
I started doing book art in the summer of 2018. I am self-taught. I do book carving and book folding. I love taking a book and turning it into something unexpected- a piece of art! I feel good about taking books that would eventually end up in landfill and giving them a new life.
I am on Facebook, Instagram, Etsy, and Pinterest as Book Art by Melody.
All my books are done by hand, a page at a time. I find the books at used bookstores, library sales, discard bins, garage sales, free boxes… everywhere!
