Though it’s the sneaky repurposing of pulp novel covers into freshly bound notebooks that wowed our judges, we’d also like to applaud Paperbacknote’s clever repurposing of the old books’ interior pages as well. The brand creates coasters and origami-inspired artworks out of old chunks of Archie Comics and the like, giving forgotten reads a new life on multiple fronts.
