Alice in Wonderland Book Handbag
Gorgeous Alice in Wonderland book handbag, featuring an original Alice in Wonderland book cover. The gorgeous illustrations are by Rene Cloke.
This beautiful creation features a slip pocket inside the bag, containing a wooden key to Wonderland and a Queen of Hearts Card ( 'Off with her head!'). Alice in Wonderland is one of the world's most beloved and timeless books, written by C.S. Lewis.
This is a 100% upcycled creation, using a preloved book and satin-sheen bag. There are lots of exciting features included in this bag - including the chapters of the book, that peek-a-boo at you when you open open the bag. This is a bespoke creation - perfect for diehard Alice in Wonderland! The bag also features a gold-toned shoulder chain, measuring 55cms in length and magnetic clasps to make the book bag close easily. The bag's lining has a beautiful shiny black sheen.
Due to the thin dimensions of the book, this bag will hold a phone, cards/coins and cash. ( Eg. It is not wide enough to hold a purse, but could fit a slim coin purse.)
Please note: When using the bag, ensure the shoulder chain is outside the bag, so it does not catch on the magnetic clasps. You can also detach the shoulder chain to mix up your look and carry with you instead.
Length: 28.5 cms
Height: 21.5 cms
Care and Instructions:
To preserve the life of your unique book clutch, ensure that you avoid any water, spills or damp surfaces. The book cover has been laminated – but treat your clutch in the same way that you would a beloved and treasured book.
About Bookanook Studio:Your book clutch has been handmade with love from my studio on the Central Coast of NSW. All books are sourced from second hand stores and pre-loved shops – so no new or unread books are damaged in the process. Yay to that! Clutches (unless specified in the description above) are also sourced from pre-loved stores and upcycled – part of the art of making a book clutch involves lovingly selecting clutches and purses that match the colour, theme and dimensions of the book. Please note: The upcycled purses/clutches and books may have minor flaws or imperfections consistent with their age, but this will not detract from their unique and beautiful, handmade look.
Manuscripts of books are reused for art projects, book sculptures and scrap booking, so nothing goes to waste. My business philosophy is to recycle and reuse – and to ultimately transform unloved books into wearable pieces of art for book fans to enjoy. I hope you enjoy your book clutch and get as much satisfaction from showing it off as I do making them.
Yours in Books,
