Fiction Reshaped

Carly Frei from Fiction Reshaped reuses old books and turns them into works of art from her studio in St. Paul, MN. Book art adds warm touches to your home décor and makes great gifts for family and friends. She creates folded book art, flower bouquets, magnets, greeting cards, and literary prints using recycled book pages.

Carly has always been environmentally conscious about her impacts on the world around us and this is one of the reasons that she wanted to work with old vintage books and help reuse them into something new. Carly started collecting old books that would otherwise be recycled or thrown away. Her desire is to extend the lives of these beautiful vintage books and give them new purpose. These books will add whimsical elegance to any space, in which Carly hopes people will see the beauty in recycling an old unwanted object.
