Just because eBooks are on the rise, doesn't mean all those lovely vintage books have to be relegated to the clearance pile (or worse, the trash!). This book, "Myths after Lincoln" has been given a second life as a secret book safe. Flip open the old hardcover, flip through a couple pages, and you'll find the carved compartment that can easily conceal money, jewelry and more.


Even with this hardcover in plain sight, no one will be the wiser!

You can keep this item flat and lay it on your nightstand, using the cover as lid Alternately, store it among your other books and no one will be the wiser.

More about the book safe making process:

♥ The pages of the book are securely glued together, and then the inside is precision carved. There are no two books that are alike - each one is handmade and one-of-a-kind.

♥ The inside pages are not lined in any way. In fact, I always maintain as much as the original book as a I can - the bottom page is the original text and page, and I usually leave a few loose pages before the carving.

♥ All Pommes Frites books are "ethically sourced". I never use new, rare, or valuable books to create book safes. Pommes Frites repurposes books that are at the end of their lifespan for one reason or another, usually claiming them from clearance bins and library book sales. Whether it's an outdated copy or stained from age and wear, I see the value and give it a second life.
