PRODUCT STORY

Hollie says: I am a collage artist living in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I currently focus primarily on found and vintage materials for my work, especially these book cover pieces. I find the books in pieces in boxes and stacked on shelves in junk shops waiting for a second chance. My favorite subject for these works is childhood. Most of the books I use tend to be textbooks and schoolbooks, as they carry the most wear and tear. I compose the subject around the scribbles and marks and notes left by previous owners.

MATERIALS
found vintage book covers, paper, glue, latex sealant

The imagery in Hollie's art made us grin, but the upcycled story turned those grins into full-blown smiles. Take a look at Hollie's story to see how she transforms used book covers into colorful collages, then cast your vote.

This would be great for covering school books for young adults who are too old for "Hello Kitty", "Transformers", and other children. It also appears the designs would be unique and make identifing the many books a college student would have in a semester.
