This Book Purse is made from a simple black leatherbound edition of "The Holy Bible." The plain black cover is only adorned with the title in silver, repeated again on the spine. The interior is fully lined with a dramatic black and white William Morris print fabric.

The handles are made with shiny black acrylic beads with silver spacers on a silver metal frame, and the purse closes with a silver metal button stamped with "Faithful Brand," and grosgrain ribbon loop. When not in use, the handles may be folded inside the purse and you can store it on a bookcase just like a real book. The Book Purses look wonderful stashed among your favorite tomes, and as you collect them, you can have an entire shelf full of purses! You can even store valuables inside them on your shelf, to keep them hidden.

There is a narrow pocket inside perfect for a slim phone or wallet, and the spine is reinforced for durability. While the purses are not fragile, and are certainly more durable than the original books they are made from, care should be taken with them. If you treat your Book Purse like you would treat a treasured old book, you will be able to enjoy it for years and years to come.

The dimensions are approximately 8 3/4" long, 1 7/8" wide, 6" tall, and the handles are 6" wide by 4" tall.

Bibliophiles, don't fret! Most of my work is made from damaged or discarded books, 90% were being thrown out by libraries. All care is taken to never use valuable or rare books. Have a favorite book that is falling apart? Send it to me and I will turn it into a one of a kind Book Purse or e-reader cover for you!
