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.
Clutches ( unless specified in the description above) are also sourced from pre-loved stores and are upcycled – part of the art of making a book clutch involves searching for clutches and purses that match the colour, theme and dimensions of the book. The manuscripts of books are then 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,
