This is very beautiful. However I can't keep from being appalled that someone would treat a book like that.

Via link or actual store? I'm not sure they sell online, I know they don't have everything they have inside the shop online. I'm sure if you called them I'm sure they'd try to work something out with you. Thank you for your interest :)

Wow! That is cool! I love the waves on one of the pages! Whenever art is made from pieces of old books, I adore it! I just love seeing all the writing on it!
