Bark Books

You never have to kill a cow again!

(At least in regards to crafting books)


I love the book recipe added by tinkers and wanted something like it without needing to add tinkers. So I threw together this mod and it kinda grew a bit from there.


  • Adds the ability to get bark pieces from wood logs.
    • There's a random chance of this happening.
    • With bark you can craft knives to make it guaranteed.
  • Can craft books from book covers!
    • Book covers are just four bark pieces.
    • Six varieties of bark book based on the vanilla woods.

Planned Features

  • Bark themed bookshelves!
  • Add a config for bark pieces dropping only when punching trees or using knife.


This mod requires my library mod, Nibbler.


Tinkers for the idea and many credits to Elucent and Roots for some of their bark/knife assets
