A handmade Book Cover

September 2, 2011

Nobody’s sure if the taifun from Okinawa will really hit Tokyo this weekend, but sooner or later the sunny days will be gone and the colder days and longer evenings will start… beside that: Japan switched to digital TV in July and in case you didn’t by a new telly yet: TIME FOR A GOOD BOOK!

And this won’t be the Sewing Circle, if the books had to stand in the shelves naked! So I decided to make this book-cover from a fabric that is inspired by Delftware, the historic blue and white porcelain from The Netherlands. The book-marker is made of a bias, ending with a girl’s face (she keeps on reading the book too!)
