Hot Money by Dick Francis


Give the gift that keeps on giving in the form of conversation and laughs. My hollow books are all one of a kind and each carry with them a story of their own; one of your creation. Great gifts for both men and woman in your life, and sure to be a conversation starter whether you use it as a gift box to to hide something special or just as a coffee table book to hold a secret treasure.

{As a former English teacher and Lover of BOOKS you might be thinking; why tear up a book? Well, the answer is clear- this book's Fate was the landfill, and now, it's been turned into a brand new reclaimed design and given a new lease on life.}

I take discarded and abandoned books from libraries, auctions, basements and stores and turn them into one of a kind new and useful objects; saving them from their landfill Fate.


First I leave a few pages near the beginning of the book to disguise what will be hidden inside, and then glue the rest together using archival bookbinder's glue. Afterward, I carve out the inside to fit whatever treasure the book is meant to hold: the 6 oz flask! (which comes with!)

After carving pages from the interior are revealed. The cover for this book is the original dust jacket that wraps from front to back depicting a racing horse jumping on a bright orange background with deep blue text.

Hot Money by Dick Francis is a discarded book with the character of wear, tear, and Love added to its form and function.
