What appears to be a vintage book is actually a safe that you can hide in plain sight. This old beat up blue hardcover at seen its better days, so I gave it a second life as a secret book safe.

Flip open the old hardcover to the title page and you'll find a secret compartment that was hand carved by yours truly.

I absolutely love the title of this one - "I was condemned to the chair"

Money, jewelry, love notes - what will you hide?

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 Whether it's an outdated copy or stained from age and wear, I see the value and give it a second life.
