When Talia Halliday became a biological mother for the first time, she recalls finding that she "needed an outlet, a catharsis—and making was just that." She had bound books in college, and she started in earnest again. What began as an escape soon turned into a business—one that allowed the Indiana-based creator to give the discarded books she found at her local library new life, and the new owner, their own little store of secret knowledge. "I wanted all of my designs to focus on repurposing materials, and creating something new and beautiful from something lost and forgotten," says Talia. Mission accomplished.
