I have run Compass Books second-hand bookshop for 20 years in Dartmouth, Devon, and have always hated having to throw away 'dead' books - ones that are damaged, or have missing pages, or loose covers etc. So I rolled my sleeves up and taught myself how to recycle old and unusable books into something that is decorative and functional.

**Special Requests**

All the book art is made to order, so if you have a special request, such as using a specific book, or a different colour or mix of colours, then please feel free to contact me.  Most things are doable!

 

**International Orders**

I do not have a standard shipping matrix for sending orders outside of the UK, but if you would like any of my items sent internationally, please feel free to contact me at lucyw802@hotmail.co.uk and let me know which items you are after, and where you want them to go, and I will happily put a postage quote together for you.


**PLEASE BE AWARE**

All off-cut paper created when making my Paperback Pets and Book Art gets shredded and used as packaging material for posting the items. With this in mind, when your package arrives, try and be in somebody else's house when you open it, as it can go everywhere and shredded paper is like glitter for turning up in strange places for days to come!
