Polymer clay - a synthetic composite polymer material is one of the most widely used creative materias available today. Natural clays are derivedfrom hydrated aluminium silicates, while polymer clay is synthetic material consited of polyvyniyl-chloride (PVC) dispersed in a plasticizer with colorants and inorganic fillers. When baked PVC particles fuse into a hard durable material, by irreverversible chemical reaction. Polymer clay is an excellent material for making: jewelry (earrings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches), office accessories (sparklingpens, luminous letter opners, business card holders), extraordinary home decor (glasses, vases, frames, mirrors can be decorated and even individualised with polymer clay) etc. Polymer clay is used by terapeuts as a didactic material to improve fine motoricks of childreen and adault persons too. At the end it is important to point out that polymer clay can be used in literary life and/or graphic desig when reading, writing and miscellaneous atractive accessories are created. In this work polymer clay was used for making hard covers for two unique designed books - according book and spiral binded book
