Last Thursday was a proud day for ABRAMS. Over 550 members of the publishing industry came together to toast Michael Jacobs, President and CEO of ABRAMS. The occasion was Goddard Riverside’s 26th Annual New York Book Fair Gala and Michael was this year’s honoree.

A confession: I haven’t done any of my holiday shopping.

Well, let me backtrack a bit; I’ve bought a few things, mostly small and falling in the “ancillary gift” category, but we’re getting down to the wire now and ABRAMS calendars for the whole family isn’t going to cut it.

If you’re in a similar pickle, I recommend Pinterest—no, not to distract yourself with photos of dream homes, foreign places, or fanciful desserts, but to find last-minute gifts.* We asked three of our colleagues to curate boards featuring unique presents and party ideas, many of which can be quickly made or quickly shipped.

STC Craft Presents: The Repurposed Library by Lisa Occhipinti

Our latest crafty title puts a new spin on old books

Say what you will about the convenience of e-readers—in my opinion, nothing could ever replace the feel of a real book. Fellow bibliophiles, take note: our May release The Repurposed Library offers a creative antidote to the digital age. Author and artist Lisa Occhipinti rescues old and orphaned books, transforming their careworn hardcovers and yellowed pages into stylish home decor and objets d’art. Her collection of 33 projects includes a Literary Lampshade, a Story Time Clock, and Narrative Vases (click here for an image gallery).
