Add some phantasmagoria and tintinnabulation to your look with this suspensefully stylish Edgar Allan Poe altered book purse. This purse was upcycled from a 1985 book called "Tales of Suspense." The cover is gray with a black tombstone that reads "Tales of Suspense - Edgar Allan Poe."

The purse measures 6 inches deep and 9.25 inches wide. I widened and reinforced the spine to be a roomy 4.5 inches wide. The fabric covering the bottom (or spine of the book) is reinforced with plastic canvas. There are 4 silvertone feet to protect the bottom of the purse.

The two fabrics are both 100% cotton, reinforced with interfacing and a water and stain resistant spray. The fabric on the bottom is a black and cream damask. The fabric on the sides and inside is a fabulous purple, black and cream Michael Miller print featuring damask skulls.

The button closure features a picture of Poe himself, on a purple background. The elastic loop is covered with matching fabric and allows for easy opening and closing. The handles are bamboo painted black with silver hooks.
