Art of the Book is an initiative to create beautifully crafted story-themed chairs for libraries, schools and non-profits to build literacy-rich environments and spread the joy of reading. Storytime Crafts chairs are integrated into public spaces to create an environment where children can explore reading, and also provide a unique space for interactive read-aloud programs.

 

Every crafted chair uses children's stories to accent the words, colors, shapes and details of each individual story. Storytime Crafts is committed to reducing waste, reusing furniture and recycling books for the Art of the Book initiative.
