Need a classy clutch to join you on that first date? Or perhaps your best friend's birthday is coming up and you need a one of a kind gift- well, this one of a kind book clutch is just for you!


All of my book clutches are made from REAL discarded books that have seen better days. The books have been hollowed out on the inside to create the 'purse' and lined with beautiful coordinating fabric. Magnets are added in order to keep the book closed. The integrity of the book is still intact and thus it still looks very much like a book and could and will fool the best of them. I work very hard at keeping the books looking just like the books they were in their prime, only this time with a different purpose hidden inside.


An Introduction to Shakespeare, a gorgeous vintage discarded text book, has been rescued and given new life as a hollowed book clutch. From the outside this classic Shakespeare text appears to be a just a beautiful vintage book. The cover is gray with Shakespeare in green script on the cover. The spine has aged discoloring with green text.

Like all of my hollow books this treasure has been glued with archival bookbinding glue to secure all of the interior pages and then carved from the inside out to form a large square. The inside of the book is lined with a modern fabric boasting circles in hues of light and dark blues. A small pocket has been added to the inside of the front cover to hold small sundries. Silky matching ribbon borders the fabric lined interior. Small magnets lie in the middle of front and back covers to help keep the book closed.

Inside Measures: approx 6 3/4" x 4"
Depth: approx 1 1/4"

Shakespeare is a discarded much-read vintage book that has seen many years of wear, tear, and Love.
