Golden Books Gown


Have you ever wondered what happens to the old children's books? Yes, they are transformed into a fashionable couture gown. Okay, not all of them. Ryan Novelline is a fashion designer who constructed the Golden Book Gown reusing the colorful pages from the discarded children’s Golden Books such as:

The skirt's surface area is 22,000 square inches is comprised completely of the illustrations from the pages of  300 Golden Books (over 1500 pages) that are sewn together with metallic gold thread, and the bodice is made from the books’ foil spines. You can learn more about the process and see more pictures here.

Have a wonderful weekend!

So cool. I had that book about Scruffy the Tug Boat when I was a child. It was one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing!
