Sites We Like: Finky Made This

For those who still believe it’s a travesty to turn an old book into a new object, there is but one truth: denial is not just a river in Egypt. For the rest of us, there’s a bookternet (h/t @rachelfersh for the new vocab) teeming with gorgeous art that makes old books new again. One of my favorite sites, which even has its own Etsy store, is Finky Made This. It’s not updated terribly often, but the paper and book-inspired crafts are always original and fun to check out. Here are a few highlights.
