A Place To Come Home To by Robert Penn Warren, a vintage 1977 abandoned book, has been rescued and given new life as a book safe with a romantic heart carved from its pages.

♥♥♥ Great for a Valentine or a Wedding ♥♥♥

The first few pages of each of my hollow books are left to disguise the secrets that are hidden inside. What is left is then glued together using archival bookbinder's glue and then carved out to create the silhouette of the heart.

The silhouette reveals the book's original beige end sheets. The cover is orange with RWP and flowers with the spine being black and the title and author in a subdued orange.

These vintage book safes are sure to please a collector of any kind! They can be used as they're intended (as safes hidden on a book shelf to hide your treasures, or your vices) or as a jewelry box on your dresser, or perhaps a conversation piece on your coffee table.
