How does one marry book culture with fashion? In the ever increasing “collector’s world” of everything under the sun, there is also a well established collecting category in books. Besides using the book to read for pleasure or “divertissement” as it would be called in hi-brow circles, there is a new area well established on the horizon called the POP UP Book.
If you cannot afford the bag you can fantasize over it, fondle the book, have nightmares to figure out how to pay for an authentic one, then wait for two years on a preferred shopper’s list or forget about it totally!
This wonderful book with a bag (what else) embossed on the cover was published by Thunder Bay Press, San Diego, California and made in China of course! (like most of the bags?) ISBN -13978-1-60710-087-4 or ISBN-10 1-67010-087-8. This one will be “tucked” away in my collection as a future guarantee for PROFIT (there is that “dirty” capitalist word again).
