Adorable little clock. Seller went above and beyond the call of duty to find the right size book when mine was too large. A super job at constructing the clock. Wrapped with absolute care and arrived in record time!

About

The Forgotten Library developed from ideas of what old and unwanted books could be used to make and endeavours to create individual gifts.

The Forgotten Library was born from daydreams whilst volunteering in a charity shop. Sorting donated books and seeing so many sent to be recycled because they weren't in saleable condition I used to imagine what else they could be used for.

Since the journals with vintage paperback covers that I first made the items available from The Forgotten Library are constantly evolving. I have a notebook of ideas I'm working my way through with quite a few notions abandoned along the way as they haven't made it past the prototype stage. There is always something waiting in the wings when I get time to work on it around a busy day job.

The books and papers that I use are sourced from second hand bookshops, auctions and charity shops, where I love the fact my purchase is helping a good cause so often spend a bit too much!
