Hollow Book Safe - Fifty Shades of Grey


Behind the bookcase of HollowBookCo.

The sweet smell of an old book when you open its covers for the very first time. These pages are bound to withstand the tests of time. Instilled in every book, the mysterious quiet observer tells no one. Secrecy hides behind the walls of human discovery but on the other side, these book covers uncover a handcrafted secret meant for someone special.

Our hollow book safes preserves a round cotton soft touch of fresh cut paper. Designed with special care and premium features built-in like its magnetic closure that offers freedom and security, museum quality seals and amazing strength so the pages will never come apart. We hope the exquisite craftsmanship put into every books will find themselves a beautiful corner in your happy home.

We've built a chemical romance. Visit our library of distinguished flasks for people with unique and exquisite tastes.

Additional policies and FAQs
We repurpose books with a magnetic closure—We take special care to use archival museum-quality, acid-free adhesives to avoid yellowing and brittleness from aging. We do our best to conserve and restore books, and maintain 'good', 'very good' to 'like new' conditions. Any notable imperfections will be noted within the listing.

Ordering custom flasks

We will send back a preview for your approval within the 1-3 day process before going to print. If we do not hear back from you regarding your preview, we'll ship your item to avoid delays with your order. If you require any exceptions, you can contact us.

Add a laser engraved quote or message
Select 'custom engraving' and add your message to 'notes' at purchase, and we'll take care of it from there. Make any design suggestions, ask for a script, serif, or san-serif block lettering if you'd like or just have us make your selection. We may send back a preview sample, so please keep your ears open for any convos about your order.
