You’ll Never Look At Books the Same Way Again

After writing about my top books of 2016,  I realized that I failed to mention that if you love books and recognize their value beyond reading you need to know about Jim Rosenau. Rosenau’s craft venture, This Into That,   is a pure joy for book lovers. Rosenau takes books with provocative titles—-like “How to Raise Your own Salary” or “Jobs For All”—and turns them into works of art.

I was so entranced by Rosenau’s collection when I first saw it last June that I vowed to let Beyond Chron readers know about  these unique, affordable art projects. And, better late than never, I now have.

Check out Rosenau’s wonderful objects at his website above. He’s open 11-6 both days next weekend as part of Berkeley Artisans Holiday Open Studios so you can see the man’s genius up close and take home a work.
You won’t be disappointed.
