Published in 1953, this vintage book about childhood games is perfect as a hiding place for money, jewelry, loose change, and even your iPhone. The cover is light cream, and I embellished it with a painted silhouette of a child on a swing.

The book was carved out by hand and the pages are glued together with Mod Podge. I lined the interior with paper from other books to keep it simple. I take care in selecting vintage books for their quality, durability, and genre. This book was acquired for free at my local library.

Previous buyers have used their hollow books to store valuables and treasures, given as gifts for friends who love to read, and enjoyed as Christmas gifts. This is a fabulous way to give new life to a book!

• Entire book: 5" x 7.5" x 1" (12.7 x 19.1 x 2.5 cm)
• Interior: 3.75" x 6.25" x 3/4" (9.5 x 15.9 x 1.9 cm)
