"Thus the young and pure would be taught to look at her,
with the scarlet letter flaming on her breast,..."
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

Share your love of books and classic literature with
a repurposed book turned into a book purse.

The book pages are removed, a lining is added
and an occasional book cover handbag is created.

An silver filigree button with elastic strap will hold all
your things nice and snug inside your purse.

I have used a Black cotton fabric for
the lining to showcase the striking black and red accents.

A pocket is included to hold smaller items.

This is a smaller type book purse that
measures 8 inches in length, 5 inches height, with
a 1 inch bottom for your goodies.
Even better as a clutch !

Photos in same order as here and in drop down menu
1) Smaller Black Wooden Handle
2) Longer Shoulder Length Handles made from tightly woven black fabric
3) Antique Wooden Handle
4) Messenger Style to carry across your body, 22 inch drop
5) No Handle - make into a clutch
6) Removable Chain - your choice Silver or Nickel
