I have been making door stops from old books. Some are more customised than others. Here’s the one I made from Jane Simmons which uses books about theatre and critics. I would usually remove the dust jackets, but her favourite colour is pink.
The Karl Marx Capital is for my (property owning) socialist friend Bronwen.
I like this one, which now belongs to Hayley Dinnison. I like the colour combo.
I’m considering backing the bottom one with felt, or polar fleece, since I have some in the cupboard. Necessity is the mother of invention.
