A Little More About Bookstruction

       A few months ago, I mentioned the craft/hobby of my son Don’s fiancée Robin.  They call it Bookstruction; when I asked if that meant construction or destruction, they said a little of both. 

       What does that mean, you ask?  Robin takes used, unwanted hardcover books and turns them into works of art by creatively cutting the pages and arranging them into a variety of figures.  As stated on her website, “Bookstruction rescues these books from this sad, mushy fate and turns unwanted books into quirky works of art.”  Last fall, she was selected as one of 150 vendors given a booth at the Crafty Bastards arts & crafts fair in Washington, DC (and several hundred vendors applied for a booth!).  And it was a huge success for her; she sold about 90% of the pieces she had on display!  After the fair, Crafty Bastards held an online voting for the best vendor, and Robin and Don and Bookstruction finished second!  What a great accomplishment, and a great way to get the business off the ground. 

       It’s so much easier to show her work, rather than trying to describe it.  So, in addition to the photo above, I’ve included several more below.  Enjoy, and see more at http://bookstruction.net
