"In Many Japanese cities, people commute to work on public transportation. Young women often cover their bunko-bon (small paperback book) with a handmade textile cozy or cover.
Making a cover for bunko-bon is a popular pastime and another example of another Japanese tendency to cover things and make them neat. It's also a way to show off your sense of style while keeping your reading material private."

And .. my cotton pink paperback book cover, with a ribbon bookmark, and a flower from felt, makes a great gift! Won't this be wonderful for anyone.
