All the recycling themed books are great! I love this one as it has such a cool mix of materials - bicycle reflector and vintage envelopes - so creative!

I like the look of the linocut proofs on the mulberry paper.

Wow, beautiful bound book - it doesn't really look recycled at all! I love the colors and the envelope pages too.
