Old Books Find a New Life with Molly Egan’s Vibrant Illustrations


Molly Egan upcycled sketchbook

If you’re itch­ing for a new sketch­book, look no fur­ther than that an old (unwant­ed) book on your shelf. Its pages are beg­ging to be upcy­cled into col­or­ful works of art. A fan­tas­tic exam­ple of this is illus­tra­tor Mol­ly Egan who show­cas­es the pos­si­bil­i­ties with her fun and vibrant imagery. Spread after spread is filled with amus­ing char­ac­ters, hand let­ter­ing, and bold shapes. And because these pages are already print­ed on, there’s less pres­sure to make each of them per­fect. This book has already had a full life—Molly is giv­ing it a new one.

Mol­ly chron­i­cles her work on Insta­gram and sells a selec­tion of it in her online shop.
