Highest quality 160GB portable hard disk enclosed in the comforting look and feel of a vintage book. Looks great on a table in a cafe, or is perfect for a "stash" disk to keep your important backups out of the hands of potential thieves, should the worst happen. The disk is powered over USB, so no need to carry around a separate power supply, just the included cable.

We love books. But we also love computers. Book selection for these pieces is a tricky balancing act - we don't want to repurpose anything too good, or rare or valuable - but equally something which looks and feels pleasing. Secondhand bookshops in and around Norfolk provide source material - often books with damage to their pages are chosen, or just something which catches the eye. Many, many books are rejected due to being "too nice to glue"

All paper and covers are sealed with glue and this design has been extensively tested for potential heat damage under normal usage. During development a five hour disk stress test was passed with flying colours, and the treated paper is even flame-retardant (please note: actual flames coming out of your disk are not considered 'normal' usage!)

Disks are formatted ready to use for all modern operating systems including all versions of Windows, MacOS and Linux.
