Many of us love books. It's not just about the reading but there is also the pleasure of holding a book and turning its pages.

However, books do eventually age. Spines come undone and the next thing you know, the book falls apart.

Lana Manis, whose Etsy store, Simple Joys Paperie, is filled with her delightful crafts featuring recycled vintage books.  The pages of the books go towards making vintage book wreaths. However, the book covers were saved for her Vintage Book Spine Cuffs collection.  Cool!

Not just any books but vintage French ones!  I totally agree with Lana that her bracelets made from book covers will make great gifts for book lovers, librarians and perhaps in the case of the French books, linguists.  But most of all, these will appeal to those who want a one of a kind eco jewelry.
