These last few crisp, fall evenings have really put us in the mood for warm beverages and cuddly knitwear. I know we’re not the only ones ready to hole up with a few bundles of wool, which is why we’re so thrilled to present this “knitted” trailer for The Knitted Slipper Book by Katie Startzman. We are sure that this short story of slipper-making and love will enchant you. (You’ve got to check out the sets, which Katie and her sister designed and built out of wool and cardboard–and then there’s the amazing sound, including the click clack of needles, the chirp of a cuckoo clock, and the crackling of a fire).
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).
