A Gorgeously Sublime Gorgeous Collage of Book Covers

This is a birthday gift to my sister I finished last night. It is only three months and sixteen days late! Not bad. She was prompt with my birthday gift in February, sending me a lady serial killer novel straight to my iPad kindle. Sisterly love.
This hodpodge collage is mod-podged. Say that three times fast. Or at least once. Come on, say it. SAY IT.
Mod Podge is glue. That dries. Clear.
Most of these book covers were from bodice-rippers. They were being thrown away at a thrift store where my friend works and she rescued them by ripping off their bodices. (Do you see what I did there?)

Do not call this 'up-cycling.' I hate that word. It's hipster douche.

My favorite cover is right of center: the Revolutionary Dude being nursed back to health by the buxom brunette. I like how his bandages don't hide his amazing Man Nipples.


  1. no way. the BEST pic is the fiery redhead in the green dress wielding a knife. THAT, is the best pic (IMHO). :)

  2. I want one of these. And I like the phrase "hipster douche". Yes.
