book bags

New troppo-style poll? Which old book would you like to turn into a handbag?
Ideally vintage Girl's Crystal, but couldn't cut it up. Would have to be something in the Year 10 thick Mathematics line.

On the contrary, there's a few old bags I'd like to turn into books, starting with...oh nevermind...

Yes I had thought of turning that question inside out...

Old bags are good material.
I imagine.

One of our fellow bloggers (Laura of Sills Bend blogspot in Melbourne) makes bags out of trashy novels cover art and she sells them on ebay do look at

she also has great peculiar photos of her cats at her blog.
What book would make a good bag? Neville Shute's 'On The Beach'?

Great link, thanks.
Had only just discovered Laura's blog, but not her art.

On The Beach? As modelled by Ava Gardner?

Actually - the Melways would be my number one choice.Except again it would be difficult to wear any cutting up of the pages. And which map?
Apparently map 59 is very sought after in certain circles. But some of those penisular maps feature about 80% Port Phillip Bay in melways blue.
