Book safes have a colorful history in not only literature and film, but also as a practical hiding place in real life as well. Books have often been overlooked by intruders and thieves. This is perhaps more true than ever nowadays. So if you're looking for a clever place to stash your valuables, a book safe is a rather good idea.

I carved this handprint design into a large Russian English Dictionary book with a scroll saw. I then secured the pages with professional book binding glue. I carve each of my books by hand.

The book itself measures 8-1/2 inches wide by 10-1/2 inches tall by 1-1/2 inches thick.

*This is an upcycled, vintage rescued book, and as such it is in used condition. It shows some signs of light wear and tear but the binding is in good condition. It came from a non-smoking household (so far as I can tell).

**Accessories not included
