Kate Spade sure knows her books AND her pocket books - Spade stores have almost as many vintage display books as they do bags. Which gave her an idea...

Books that are purses!!!

Notice that these clutches are a numbered series from "Kate Spade Publishing." Try to collect every "volume!"

Now you can "read" ...even if you're not in the library!

Or anywhere in particular...

If you'd like to find your own great vintage book covers to decorate with, visit the Database of Vintage Book Covers.

Or just throw down some cash at Anthropologie...

Book covers in spades - these are Andy Spade's displays. Do try this at home:  just print out some of the covers from the Database (above) and frame them! Your walls will be well read.

And, if you'd like to pretend your laptop is a vintage bookstore, visit Kate Spade's special online section "Arguments for Looking at Books Instead of Reading Them," to download wallpapers/book covers with vintage designs.

I saw those, too! There's got to be a way to make one.

That database is amazing! I recently found a company that will print your design to fabric, how cool would it be to do pillows of these? Lovely post (oh, and count me in as someone who adores Mad Men, as well!).

Genius - I love the idea of framing vintage book covers. I so appreciate the link. You can't always read a book by it's cover, right?

Have a glorious Sunday ~


I love this idea! Great color, great graphics and the great possibility to make me look smarter than I am!
