My Library

I only really started buying craft books within the last few years, but I am definitely trying to build my library out a bit. I’m especially a sucker for Japanese craft books, even if I can’t read a word in them or actually try the projects inside. Here’s what I have as of now.

You can also view these books by visiting my craft library on LibraryThing.
