Holy cow, this is the coolest thing I've heard about in a long time. I never heard about Latin American cartonera publishers until Lars Palm just told me about them (I am just finishing his Teeny Tiny chapbook).  This page is a great resource, and the flickr slideshow at the bottom of the page is awesome. These publishers use recycled cardboard to make unique book covers with painted (etc) designs, all in an effort to make literature more accessible. I love it.

ingenious!

OK, you have to scroll way down to "Other" in this list of recently received items in Silliman's blog to see this, so I will cut and paste what Mr. Silliman says about the latest Teeny Tiny chapbook:

"Eileen Tabios, Novel Chatelaine,
A Teeny Tiny Chapbook, no location given (but we’re guessing Edmonds, Washington), 2009. Seven chapter, 8-page novel with great color graphics ingeniously printed on a single piece of 20-lb weight copy paper."


A small but mighty review of Novel Chatelaine, the latest Teeny Tiny booklet.
