These quick change map book covers were born out of the need to brighten up this little shelf in my living room for the summer. I love finding vintage books at auction and garage sales, but it seems that most of mine have darker covers. I have an old road atlas that I keep around for projects (like the easy map art that is in the kids' bathroom), and I knew the green and blue colors would be perfect.
I just cut the map page large enough to wrap all the way around, and just inside the covers of the books, and attached it with a small piece of tape. You can see that I even cheated and wrapped two books together to give the illusion of one thicker book.
Super easy and a super quick way to update a few books to give your shelf a fresh look.
