This vintage book is cloth bound in like a moire fabric, Old Fashioned Girl is one of Louisa M. Alcott's books, she wrote most famously "Little Women." The pattern on the cover is hard to photograph, but what you see in the first one wasn't caused but the flash it does shimmer that pattern of lines in any light but the book comes across a little darker blue than that.

The inside of the book is a photo of Alcott's home in Concord MA (less than an hour up the road from my town here in Gloucester incidentally)

There are magnets in the corners to keep the lid closed tight



the book is about 8 by 5 1/2" and the cut out is about 6 by 4" and over 1 inch deep

Frequently asked questions about BookEndDesigns

No, sorry. I don't make the books them selves, I search for real vintage books in a wide variety of subjects to try to find something to suit anyone and everyone but I do not make the covers. Search here on etsy for book makers, get them to make you a blank book and I can hollow it out for you after though.
Of course! For the best results I'd like you to trace your object and mail a hard copy to me so I can use that tracing as a template, if the tracing is good, the fit will be good. Send me a message and we can work on a plan.
Absolutely! I'll need a tracing of your particular firearm and a measurement of the thickness (so the book cover closes) and I'll use that tracing as a template to cut your book. Of course, even though you can keep your gun in there, its a novelty and is no substitute for a trigger lock and an actual locking gun safe.
I try to ship everyday, even on Saturday so if you order overnight it's likely to ship next day, if you order early in the day (eastern time) it might even go same day. Every order is sent Priority Mail so in the US there is a 2-3 day average shipping time. If you're in a rush, just send a message or leave a note to seller and let me know so I can try to accommodate it.
Yes you can! If you send me a book I can cut it out and send it back to you, some size restrictions apply, but as long as its hardcover I can usually cut it out.
No, sorry. Certainly there will be instances of the same book being used by multiple shops, but I won't copy any specific designs, or try to match a certain cutout shape that has been creatively designed by someone else. I don't want to see my ideas in other shops and I can only imagine they don't want to see theirs in mine.
