Star-Crossed Orbits
----------

For this hollow book I have taken an abandoned book entitled Star-Crossed Orbits and left the first few pages intact. The remaining pages are then glued together with an archival bookbinders glue and then carved out in the shape of a heart. A black end sheet is revealed through the heart.

The cover of Star-Crossed Orbits is black with a romantic red book cloth for the spine- the title in gold. These books make for classy one of a kind ring bearer boxes that can hold your wedding band or a custom made pillow to fit in the cut out that will hold your ring. If you would like a custom made pillow to come with your book, please add this listing to you order: http://www.etsy.com/listing/80837420/heart-shaped-pillow-add-on.

Give the gift that keeps on giving in the form of conversation and laughs. My hollow books are all one of a kind and each carry with them a story of their own; one of your creation. Great gifts for both men and woman in your life, and sure to be a conversation starter whether you use it as a gift box to to hide something special or just as a coffee table book to hold a secret treasure.

{As a former English teacher and Lover of BOOKS you might be thinking; why tear up a book? Well, the answer is clear- this book's Fate was the landfill, and now, it's been turned into a brand new reclaimed design and given a new lease on life.}

I take discarded and abandoned books from libraries, auctions, basements and stores and turn them into one of a kind new and useful objects; saving them from their landfill Fate.
