A process, a journey, a creation

I created my first clock years ago for myself, and it has traveled with me to many cities, many apartments, many opportunities. And in all of those places, my handmade clock has helped make those apartments home.

Recently, I've decided to spread the love. Each clock is unique, and I love to continually invent new styles and designs, including custom designs.

I'm sure you'll find something here that perfectly fits you! My unique repurposed clocks also make great gifts and will delight not only book-lovers, but anyone who enjoys unexpected combinations and one-of-a-kind products!

    Hello all! A bibliophile myself, I scour library discards and thrift stores for abandoned books to give new life. I hope they find a way into your home and that they brighten your days, in home, office, or library!

Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders:

I do custom varieties of two types:

1 - Custom Design - I work with you to select the book color, design, etc.

2 - Custom Book - send me any handcover book you want, and I will make it a clock for you! Books thinner than 3/4" will be a wall clock, books thicker than 3/4" will be a desk clock.

Ask me if you have any questions, I can do just about anything you can imagine! If you would like a custom piece, contact me and we can discuss the details. As price varies by design, AFTER our conversation, I will create a custom listing just for you, which you can purchase, at which point I will begin working on your creation! Your one-of-a-kind item will be shipped within 2 weeks of purchase.
