Announcement   Unique wood books made from old Portuguese furniture.
Welcome to the world of books with wooden memory. Here, really old wood and recycled paper - create a special space for your words, images, or sketches.
You can find also other unique objects created from pieces of old furniture or local wood.

For the book covers we use pieces of damaged, antique furniture that have already served for generations and are destined to be burned or chipped.

It is Hana who personalizes the covers with carvings or completes it with authentic accents. Each cover is unique and one of a kind. .
All books she binds using mostly recycled paper as re-utilization is base of Lacuna's philosophy.

Rúben enjoys creating perfectly crafted, functional pieces like boxes or serving trays out of local wood or fragments of old wood.

Teresa cuts the sheets of paper and binds them securely into the wooden covers. She is the organized mind in the creative whirl!

Lacuna work is also collaborating with residents of local organization that helps homeless and socially fragile people. Some of our wooden covers are now being sanded with care and dedication by these men with troubled life history.

About

Books with wooden memory

We transform old quality wood from fragments of old furniture into unique book covers and other beauties.
We live in Portugal and search for fragments of old furniture that are destined for decay or destruction. We give the quality material new life as covers of albums, wedding albums or diaries but also create boxes, hangers or folders. We search to re-use all the charming old elements as key holes, old sofa leather or broken clock interiors to create new future for the material with so much memory.

The old wood is each day harder to find but is still enough to have our days filled with smell of old days and new beginnings.
