BEST Goes Green: Book Swap #12 Preview

"Recycling" is the theme of our fall swap this year, and it yielded some truly unique books made from a variety of reclaimed items. Participants went out of their way to make extraordinary offerings using things you might never consider "book arts" material. Close up looks over the next two weeks will illustrate how we used not only scraps and ephemera, but empty boxes, bamboo mats, thrift store pants and even a seat belt to create this round of amazing books to share with each other and you.
