In need of a secret hiding place or a safe? Love books? Why not combine the two and get a hollow book!

This hollow book was completely cut out by hand over the course of a few days with a box cutter and was made out of a copy of "Foreign Babes In Beijing" by Rachel DeWoskin I had found in a thrift shop.

The hard cover is red along the spine and olive green. The titles are in shiny gold leaf. To match the gold, I painted the outside of the pages gold and the top of the recess gold as well.

Dimensions of the book: 8.5in (L), 5.5in (W), 1.25in (H). Dimensions of recess: 7.25in (L), 4.25in (W), 0.75in (H) This is READY TO SHIP.

Use this as a safe to protect important or contraband items, or as a jewelry box. Giving a gift? Use this as the gift box and the recipient gets two gifts in one! Left out or tucked away on a shelf, it blends in and looks like an ordinary book.

If you don't have a PayPal account and want to pay with a credit card, that is no problem. Select "PayPal" during check out and then you'll be able to enter your card information securely.
