Re-Bound is a beautiful book on bookbinding with a fun green twist-all the projects use recycled and upcycled materials. This book shows you how to take everyday materials from around the house, flea markets, thrift stores, and hardware stores and turn them into clever and eye-catching hand-made books.
Jeannine Stein has been making books for more than fifteen years, exploring bindings, mediums, and techniques. In addition to teaching book-binding, she is an award-winning journalist, and she has written extensively about paper crafts-artists' books, scrapbooking, rubber stamping, and letterpress.

Since re-bound: Creating Handmade Books from Recycled and Repurposed Materials hit bookstore shelves in the summer of 2009, the San Francisco Recycling Examiner has been trying to get her hands on a used copy. Alas, books like this never get traded in at used bookstores, so the Examnier finally broke down and bought a brand new copy a couple of weeks ago at the Booklegger in Old Town Eureka. No wonder this is impossible to buy used; it's a gem!

There are complete, simple to follow, detailed instructions in this book for making 16 handmade books from recycled and repurposed materials. Most of the items used to make the covers of these books are ones people will have either cluttering up a closet or in the recycle bin. For those items not on hand, they can easily be found at thrift stores.
