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 brick lined room with a library bookcase. I made the book nook itself, the cosy chair, the bookcase, pictures, table and knick knacks, and the heaps of books myself. I try and made most of the contents myself, a lot from things that were destined for recycling.
There is a cosy chair with a sheep footstool , piles of books, a table with a hot drink and a cream cake and other knick knacks, a tiny suitcase made of card is on the floor. The bookcase is heaped with books, and various little knick knacks mingled in with the books. The walls have lots of posters,, mounted on board, of vintage advertising and comic covers, and a stags head. I have packed lots into thi one!
There are lights clustered into 2 lampshades, these are bright 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 nook is black.
Approximate measurement are, 6” 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.
