As a crazy cat lady, I have many ways to show my love for cats—cat necklaces, cat t-shirts, cat buttons, etc—but none to show my love of books except for the fact that I’m always carrying one. Well, now I can:
These book necklaces are produced by Margaux Kent and her line Black Spot Books. Margaux is a (normal-sized) bookmaker from Pennsylvania who uses the scraps from her projects to create this awesome jewelry. Hand-made and one of a kind, they’re available at Alter, a very cool boutique here in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I’d suggest calling them if you’re out of town, but if you’re heading to Brooklyn, you could always make an indie shopping day of it and visit both Alter and our friends at WORD, which is just down the street.
