If I Can't Read Actual Books Anymore, I'm Gonna Carry Stuff In Them

It's finally OK to judge a book by its cover. And maybe keep your lipstick in it.

Perhaps it's true that books are on the same path as the dodo and Crystal Pepsi. The small percentage of people that still like to read stories have really taken to the electronic tablet reader device and although I guess that should be good news -- given that we are saving all those trees -- I still think actual books are king.

But for everyone else who has given into "technology" and "the future," there is still a way to showcase your love for your favorite books. Olympia Le-Tan's hand-made clutches feature beautiful embroidered reproductions of classic cover designs and fit your essentials for a night out on the town. Buy your favorite book or one that looks cool; just don't try to drunkenly read it at 2 in the morning and dump your belongings out everywhere.
