Virus update. Please allow for delays, the postal service is doing its best, but in these unprecedented times, parcels may be delayed. I include your tracking number in your item dispatched notification. I am UK based, and UK orders are sent Royal Mail special next day delivery. Overseas orders are sent Royal Mail tracked. My book nooks are made and ready to go, I may have to glue in the chair or a figure which will dry overnight. I post frequently during the week.
Brighten up your bookshelf, with this Book Nook shelf insert. made from upcycled hardback books.
This is a room with a library bookcase. I made the book nook itself, the cosy chair, the bookcase, pictures and knick knacks, and the heaps of books myself, in fact I have made everything apart from the mug and chocolate bar! Oh and the optional dog. I try and made most of the contents myself, a lot from things that were destined for recycling.
There is a mirrors that reflect everything in the room, giving it the appearance of having a further room off to the side. There is a cosy chair and , a pile of books with a hot drink and a chocolate bar perched on it., some pictures on the walls, a fake clock and a ladder to get to the top shelf. The bookcase is heaped with books, and various little knick knacks mingled in with the books. This has taken me days to create! There is an optional dog, please let me know if you would like him.
There are lights clustered into a lampshade, these are white lights so give a nice bright glow, they are battery operated and take 2 AA batteries. The battery pack is located at the top of the spine, meaning you don’t have to move it to switch the light on and off. The book is blue with black finishing. I print the wallpaper and flooring myself, they are photo quality images.
Approximate measurement are, almost 4 ½” wide at the front, 9 1/2 tall, and 7” deep including the battery pack.. Hand crafted by me taking quite a few hours, and made from modern day, in great condition, upcycled hardback books, but please allow for minor blemishes on the outside of the book. Yes I treasure books, but thousands upon thousand are sent to landfill each year as they can’t be recycled, so I remove the pages from these so they can be recycled.
Adult collectors only.
