    The Black Arrow book purse - 


    The Black Arrow was written by Robert Louis Stevenson, the writer famed for his classic novel, Treasure Island. The Black Arrow was first published in 1888

    and is both an historical fiction novel and a romance novel. The vintage illustrations on this book are stunning!


    This vintage book cover has been matched with a brown, upcycled faux leather purse. The colour of the purse perfectly complements the Black Arrow's dashing outfit! The purse will hold all your coins, cards and cash and has a black inner lining and zippered pocket. Stand out from the crowd with this fabulously vintage book purse! This is a bespoke creation and only one in stock.

    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. In this instance, any minor flaws will be clearly described and advertised.


    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,
