Sometimes you are caught in a dilemma of what to do to your old books. Strongly possessed, one doesn't feel like disposing them. You don't have to donate your favorite books any more, as you can get fine bags made out of them. Hard to believe, but Caitlin Phillips, based in Washington runs a company called Rebound Designs, which crafts handbags from the covers of old hardback books. She herself removes the pages and handcrafts each purse, matching the fabric and handle to the cover. You also get the option of asking back the removed pages of the book. These ultra durable purses can be ordered to be made from any book, as Phillips can also do the book hunting for you. The purses generally retail around $100 to $200.
