Wrapping Books is Fun December 10, 2012

Posted by ccbooks in Bookstore.

It is December, which means I get to wrap books! This is hands down my favorite thing about working retail during the holidays (that, and getting to recommend far more books than usual!). Books are such nice things to wrap–they each have a mostly regular shape; you can stack them easily and tie them together. At Imagination Station, the store where I worked in high school, we had very exact methods for wrapping a book and tying a curly ribbon to make a gorgeous bow. Here are some old photos I took back then that show part of the process. Isn’t that row of ribbon beautiful?
