While we’re on a children’s book nostalgia kick (see my recent post on vintage book club mailers), remember Little Golden Books? I was appalled a few years ago to find that the current editions are cheap, staple-bound, and flimsy, lacking all the charm and sturdiness of the originals, but I still remember the original books very fondly.

And apparently I’m not the only one. A clothing designer named Ryan Novelline (an appropriately bookish name, isn’t it?) has crafted an absolutely beautiful dress out of discarded Little Golden Books covers. She provides lots of photos of the dress itself as well as the construction process Check it out!
