Blank Books - Recycled Ex-library

Check out our one-of-a-kind blank books made by hand from the recycled bindings of discarded public library books and other old books. These sturdy hardback bindings are covered in colorful patterned or illustrated buckram cloth, and the library stamps, pockets, and markings are left intact for added charm. The interior blank text block is perfect-bound (glued) and sewn with high quality unlined paper (white or cream unless otherwise noted) and embellished with a cloth ribbon bookmark. The page count varies for each book, but the depth of the blank text block is given in inches so you can tell how thick it is. Each book is unique and current stock is showcased here. Our blank books are suitable for writing, notes, sketches, or collage. Give a stylish and durable gift with one of these colorful books.
