Olympia Le-Tan

I know these are really hot right now and I am sure a lot of you have heard about them already... but we are just obsessed with these here at Bibliochic! 
Olympia Le-Tan makes these beautiful hand-sewn clutches that are fashioned after covers of books.  They are simply divine don't you think?  Its an innovative way to take beautiful books out of our library and put them into our wardrobe.  Olympia said, ”I was thinking there were all these beautiful books around and they were being forgotten with everybody on the Internet, so I made it so that you can carry them around." 
Here are some more examples of her work...

Which book would you choose?  She has many many more to choose, everything from Lolita to Catcher in the Rye.  Check out her website (here) to see where you can buy these beauties!
