Books are to be read not torn apart,even for the sake of craft

where as I agree with Vintagecrafts thoughts - there are thousands of books being destroyed every day.Why not save what we can? I have hundreds of books, encyclopedias, yearbooks , etc - can not sell at any price, I am going to save , trade the best pages before I Discard completely. Ml

So agree marclively! BUT, it took me a long time to finally tear a book. I love to see them recycled!

@Vintagecrafts as long as they will be read from peoples I absolutely agree. But as @marclively say there are thousands of books that get throw away daily... just here where I live I see the container to dispose them full each time I go there. So why not safe and upcycle them for crafts.

I only use books that are damaged. I get many that the Public Library has taken out of service. It gives me pleasure to give a part of a book (often many parts of the same book) a second life, rather than seeing it immediately condemned to the recycled paper bin at the transfer station.

Plez define “real vintage”

Nehalennia 11/27/2019 #

@magenta3 real vintage means everything from the time BEFORE 1970. Modern reproductions of vintage style, you see them a lot these days, is not real vintage.
