Vintage Book Handbags from Rebound Designs

Mixing literary with the fashionable may seem to be an odd couple. One does not often think Edgar Allen Poe and a Purse, or Jane Eyre and chic. Dorothy Parker was a woman of dark wit and quite a stylish sense of fashion. She never failed to match irony with sarcasm.
Caitlin Phillips of Rebound Designs has salvaged unloved vintage books of great prose and given them new life fashionable handbags. She takes the covers and bonds them with coordinating fabrics, beads and hardware to create brainy bijoux.
Are the words lost inside? No. She takes titillating passage and creates brooches as well.
