Coronavirus update. In the UK we are on certain restricted movements, but the postal service carries on. Luckily I am near my local Post Office, and intend to carry on posting, obviously within guidelines and in a social distancing way! Please bear in mind there may be delays, and things may take a bit longer than normal.
Liven up your book shelf with this book nook shelf insert. A rather smart figure of a gentleman, sitting reading in his library. There are 6 LED fairy lights in the ceiling and it really glows when turned on in the dark, these are white lights and quite bright. He is sitting on a white chair I made, has a pile of books on a little table that is covered with a map with a drink on it, he has a footstool with flying pigs on that match his chair cushion, and a little set of steps to reach the higher shelves, which I also handmade, I could have bought the chair, table, the drink and all the other things, but instead I challenged myself to make them from things that normally get thrown away! This was very easy for me as I have a treasure trove of goodies deemed too good for the bin or recycling! He is surrounded by a photo quality image of a library. He isn’t glued in so I can change him for the woman figure reading, I am waiting for her to arrive and will add her to the options when she does! ( should be in the next few days)
The battery pack is attached at the back for ease of changing the batteries, and the switch is at the top of the book at the end of the spine.
The book is black with black finishing , and measures almost 9 1/2″ tall, the book is just over 6″ deep, 7 1/4″ including battery pack, almost 7″ wide at the front then tapers towards the back. It uses 2 AA batteries.
Hand crafted by me, taking quite a few hours, and made from upcycled books, so please allow for minor blemishes on the outside of the book. Yes I treasure books but lots of unwanted hardback books end up in landfill as they can’t be recycled. Rest assured the pages from the books I use have been removed from the spine, and recycled.
Adult collectors only.
