When my neighbour dropped off a stack of children’s books from the 1970s with torn pages and ripped spines, I couldn’t bring myself to put them in the recycling. After sitting with my son and flipping through to look at the gorgeous illustrations, we decided to start creating.

My creations have sustainability at their core. Each creation is one-of-a-kind and hand made from broken children's books that would otherwise be thrown away. Most importantly for fellow bibliophiles, no books were harmed! All the books we use are beyond repair with broken spines and missing pages.

Giving back to the community is really important to me. I donate $1 from every sale to a charity - usually related to the topic of the book I have used!

You’re welcome to arrange pick up from Dunedin. Otherwise, I try to post items out within 24 hours of receiving payment, items purchased on weekends will be posted on Monday. International buyers please note that shipping from New Zealand can take 7-10 working days.
