A good thing...

This charming idea is from the May 2007 issue of Martha Stewart Living.

"A good read always makes a nice gift, but why not make it good-looking, too? Use rubber stamps to decorate the edges with a design or message. It'll add a personal touch to any tome. To ensure a happy ending, hold the pages together as you stamp." Link.

Like many students, I decorated (defaced?) the edges of my high school textbooks with colored pens and highlighters. It was a fun way to avoid actually doing my homework --especially my math homework. Leave it to Martha to turn this idea into something useful and pretty.

Note, however, that any markings you make on a book could lower its value if it ever becomes collectable. -Lori
