After upgrading to a smart phone i realized, "how am i going to keep this thing from being broken?" so i started searching around for some unique phone cases. at some point i stumbled upon the bookbook, and thought to myself, "i could make something way cooler than that". so i started digging thru my vintage books and happened upon a 6 book set of tiny leatherbound poetry books. after some measuring, gluing pages, and VERY carefully cutting out the center of  the pages i was left with this little beauty. This is my prototype, as i intend to make 5 more and begin the hunt for more  books since this project is so cute and easy. unfortunately i couldnt get a picture of the phone inside the book, because my phone is my only camera atm.

Lovely idea and you used a nice-looking book too.
