Bind the classics. These "Books in Sheets" are ready to bind with your favorite materials. They have been formatted in content-appropriate fonts, imposed into separate sections and copied onto good quality 70 lb. paper. You just fold and sew.  Since you're purchasing just the words you have hundreds of options for binding. Christine would love to help you if you have any questions. Email me here.

Directions for folding the sections are provided with each set. Each book has been formatted so that you can use it as-is or you can embellish the pages with rubber stamps, calligraphy or drawings.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

Thus begins one of the greatest love stories ever told. Ours features a font created from the author's own handwriting (for the title and chapter headings) and includes all the headstrong pride and prejudice of Lizzy and Mr. Darcy. Bind it for yourself or for the romantic in your life.

Trivia: Do you know Mr. Darcy's first name?

Sensible Elinor, idealistic Marianne, scheming Willoughby, dashing Edward and faithful Colonel Brandon, are in all their Austen splendor. For the chapter headings and title we used a font based on the author's handwriting. You won't be able to resist reading the novel as you construct your book.

This is not the Disney version. It's translated from the Italian and is the original, darker version of Pinocchio. It's a wonderful read for older children and adults (think along the lines of Grimm's Fairy Tales).

* A. A league is as far as a person can walk in 1 hour, approximately 3MPH. It's no longer an official unit in any country. The title of the book refers to the distance the ship traveled, not the depth of the seas. Cool, huh?
