Just in time for Valentine's Day is this lovely book safe with a heart shaped carving. I've taken this old book - which I found in the clearance bin - and given it a second life as a secret book safe. Keep your valuables tucked inside and no one will be the wiser!

The book is blue with a faded blue/brown spine. There are some marks from age on the cover, but nothing that doesn't add to the vintage quality of this book. Inside, there is colorful text and pictures surround the heart shaped carving.

This is a perfect vessel for a gift this Valentine's Day, and I also think they make fantastic ring bearer alternatives!

You can keep this item flat and lay it on your nightstand, using the cover as lid Alternately, store it among your other books and no one will be the wiser.

**** Need gift wrap?? All Pommes Frites book safes come wrapped in kraft paper in twine, and I would be happy to add a handwritten gift tag with a note from you! Just add details in the "message to seller" ****

The pages are securely glued together, and then the inside is precision carved. No two books are alike!

The inside pages are not lined in any way. In fact, I always maintain as much as the original book as a I can - the bottom page is the original text and page.

In addition to keeping the look of a vintage book in tact, I also make sure to "ethically source" all of my books - meaning I never use new, rare, or valuable books to create safes. I only use books that are at the end of their lifespan for one reason or anther - whether it be from age, staining or wear, or just a bad copy. I like to think I give these books a new life as an adorable book safe.

♥ Book measures 8" x 5"
♥ Carved area measures about 4" x 4" at the longest points and is about 1" deep.
