Now, the making of a good compilation tape is a very subtle art. Many do's and don'ts. First of all you're using someone else's poetry to express how you feel. This is a delicate thing. – High Fidelity.

I love me some High Fidelity. And yes yes, I’m aware that I just quoted the film and not the book. But the statement is true. A good mixtape is a delicate thing, an art form. And Somavenus, an Etsy crafter from Portland, takes that concept to a whole new level with her mixtape notebooks.

Old cassette tapes find new life with her recycled books, as the tapes are formed into super cute pocket-sized journals. Each one is unique, with different interior paper, bindings, back covers, and of course, tapes.

Want to learn more about Somavenus and her work? Etsy featured her on their Quit Your Day Job segment. It’s a great Q&A about her, her work and life as a full time creative. Read up!
