Looking for bling? Book Fiend, on Etsy, offers a wide range of adorable jewelry, stickers, and magnets featuring cool literary quotes. Also on Etsy is TheBookCellar, maker of tiny, real, handmade books as charms for earrings, necklaces, and more.
While my favorite book dress is no longer available, ModCloth boasts an impressive array of other cool literary clothing and gifts, like this Jane Austen quote mug. I spotted a cute accessory in the latest uncommon goods catalog: this Literary Scarf silk-screened with passages from Alice in Wonderland, Dorian Gray, Jane Eyre, or Wuthering Heights. Might have to snag one of those for myself…
For the craftier folks among you, try your hand at making something out of this cool book fabric available from fabric.com. And how adorable is this book quilt? The paper-pieced pattern is available from Winnowing Designs.
