This super cool Japanese text book (organic chemistry) was found in the clearance section, desperately needing a make over. Hidden inside now is a hand carved compartment, perfect for stashing your secret items.

The carving is spacious enough to hold an ipod, money, jewelry - what will you hide?

You can place the book safe on it's back on your dresser or nightstand, using the front cover as a lid. Alternately, this book will fit snugly among your other books, and no one will be the wiser.

The book opens to the title page, with several pages left loose beforehand - further adding to the ruse.

The pages are securely glued together, and then the inside is precision carved. No two books are alike!

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, with a few loose pages before the carving.

In addition to keeping the look of a vintage book in tact, I also make sure to "ethically source" all of my books - meaning I never use new, rare, or valuable books to create book safes. I only use books that are at the end of their lifespan for one reason or anther - whether it be from age, staining or wear, or just a bad copy. I like to think I give these books a new life as an adorable book safe.

♥ Book measures 8.5" x 5.5"
♥ Carved area measures about 3.5" x 4.5" and is about 1" deep
