Bookwrap: a removable cover for a book.
A Bookwrap can be embroidered, quilted, pieced, patched or appliqued or it can be a mixed media piece. A Bookwrap can be a book jacket, where the book’s covers are inserted into sleeves, or a wrap-around cover which is tied or otherwise secured to hold the book in place.

What you need to do:

  • Make the Bookwrap to fit any commonly-available notebook. You may include the book if you wish, but adding a notebook is NOT compulsory;
  • Include a slip of paper with the Bookwrap to show the maker’s name;
  • Photograph it and send the photo to: Bookwrapgems@gmail.com and we’ll put it on the website. Include any information you wish to share (techniques used, material, size, etc);
  • If you can it would help us if you resize the photo to 72 dpi and a maximum dimension of 600 pixels, but if not please still send the photo to us;
  • If you can’t photograph it, put a note with the Bookwrap when you send  it and we’ll do that for you;
  • Parcel up your Bookwrap and send it to: Bookwrap Gems c/o 103 Desborough Road, Rothwell, Northants, NN14 6JQ (United Kingdom);
  • Keep visiting the website to see what everyone is making.
