This book to purse idea no doubt was taken from a variety of prominent handbag designers. Although the instructions and photos on how to remake the book cover into a fashionable purse seem easy enough it really is a challenge. Best to find a thrift store hardcover book, some favorite scrap fabric, and give it a try.
