Booklicious: Etsy Gems: Book Mobiles by theshophouse

June 16, 2011


Oh, Etsy. When will you let me out of your crafty clutches? Today, I fell in love with the work of theshophouse, aka Lisa Occhipinti, a seller based out of Venice, California. Her book mobiles are named after the books from which she takes the pages - at top left is Love Plays ($72), with pages from Romeo and Juliet and Cyrano de Bergerac. At top right is Handyman, created using a 1950 edition of The Complete Home Handyman's Guide ($72) - such an unromantic book made to look so, so pretty. 

If you're toying with the idea of making your own mobile, you might want to check out Lisa's book, The Repurposed Library, for ideas.
