Handmade, one-of-kind purse using a recycled hardcover book, what a SMart idea!

What a cute book purse I made using a compilation book of James Herriot stories “All Creatures Great and Small” and “All Things Bright and Beautiful”. It would make a perfect gift for a veterinarian or any animal lover. The cover is a black with a teal linen spine. The title is foiled on the spine.

The Book Purse measures 8.5 x 5.25” with a 2.5” spine. It opens up to 7”. It is lined in a striking bird and flower print on a black color background. A pretty teal button is used for a closure. The handles are wood. This purse is sure to bring tons of compliments.

I never use new or unread books for my book purses because I respect the original intent of the book. But once the book has been read it need not sit on a shelf collecting dust! This unique Book Purse gives books new life and you something smart and functional!
