Time always marches steadily on but there are always occasions where the gift of time is welcome. I have some exciting new offerings for you...books of love poems lovingly transformed into clocks for you or that special someone...AND vintage cookbooks for your kitchens to help keep your meals coming together on time...... and, as always, some classic stories that we'll all remember from days gone by. Feel free to browse and let me know what you think!

It's my distinct pleasure to try and find new and unique ways to appreciate vintage books and honor the artists of their covers.
I thought it was time to "publish" some wonderful new book clocks for you to make your own!

Do you have a favorite volume from childhood that you'd like to have made into a clock?
Feel free to contact me to create a custom clock for you or someone you love.

With Storytime Book Clocks I have found that a love for my favorite books from childhood and beyond, and a longing for the time to read them over and over and over again, have inspired me with the idea to re-purpose books that are no longer readable while passing on the desire to read to a new generation.
I also offer some other options as well.
I can custom-make a clock for you using your favorite book or even search to find a title that you have always loved and create a one-of-a-kind timepiece from that volume.
As with the books on display, the finished clocks are of variable prices, always taking into account the age and rarity of the book and the difficulty in the loving labor that is involved in its transformation.

I will be happy to ship to anywhere in the world...just contact me and I'll give you a destination specific quote.

The hands and other visual aspect of my clocks may change slightly from the photos on my shop page due to the availability of certain parts but I guarantee they will be of the highest quality and closest approximation in style to what is pictured.

Take a look at the new group of Faux Pocket Watches with fobs, Wall clocks and Shelf clocks with a decidedly festive theme.

Check back often because there is always a special occasion or holiday that can be celebrated with a whimsical literary timepiece and most all of my Storytime Clocks are one of a kind.

I hope you enjoy these literary timepieces and that you'll choose to take one (or more) into your home or to give as gifts.

About

A Love of Books; A Love of Clocks - The Perfect Combination

Traveling back humna-humna years to when I was ten years old and I received my first wristwatch from my parents as a birthday gift.
I ran to my room, spread a towel on my bed, and within twenty minutes I had dismantled the watch completely and had begun the painstaking job of putting it back together - starting my lifelong fascination with clocks and clockworks.

Storytime Clocks started when a friend gave me a vintage children's book as a gift and, when I tried to read the book, it began to disintegrate in my hands.
It broke my heart to think of just throwing the book away so I tried to come up with a way to save the book.

Well, I had my answer! I was going to refurbish the book enough to fit it with a clock movement and hands so that I could enjoy the beautiful cover artwork AND have a new timepiece!

And that is how the seeds of this shop were sown.

My thanks to all of you who have made my clocks or my shop a part of your favorite lists. I will try to keep you interested and inspired with my work!
