YAY!! I have purchased several of these book safes from Mr. Foote, and I love them as much as those to whom I gift them! It is easy to choose book titles appropriate for the giftee, as the variety is pretty extensive. Thank you!

BookEndDesigns spent Saturday and Sunday at the Vintage Bazaar in Salisbury MA, swing by the shop and make sure your favorite didn't dissappear and make sure you pick it up before the next show at the South End Open Market at SoWa in Boston.

About

Giving New Life to Old Books and judging books by their covers on a daily basis

What is a book without its story? I like to think of BookEndDesigns as providing more than just a place to store that emergency hundred dollar bill where no one will find it, I like to find books that have titles and covers that let you insert your self into the book as if it were made for you. When you pick up a book that longer tells you the story, it lets you make up your own, you get to make that book about the memory of going camping with Dad, or your that trip that changed your life or the stories Mom read to you as a kid and the same book can mean something different for everyone that picks it up.

Frequently asked questions

Can you make a cover with my logo/photo/personal design?

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.

Can you make a book that will specifically fit my phone/removable hard-drive/object of great importance?

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.

Can you make a hollow book to fit my gun?

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.

When will I recieve my hollow book?

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.

Can I send you my favorite book to be cut out?

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.

Can you copy a hollow book design from another shop?

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.
