Thomas Hardy Book Clutch
  • Thomas Hardy Book Clutch

    $79.95Price

    This stunning book clutch is an ode to the literary genius of Thomas Hardy, author of the much loved classic, Far from the Madding Crowd and The Mayor of Casterbridge. 

     

    This book clutch features an original hard cover that has been especially matched with an upcycled, black evening clutch. The clutch features an inner slip pocket and retro-inspired gold pop clasp.  The silver, vintage-inspired shoulder chain can easily be slipped inside the clutch so you can mix up your look and carry with you instead. This clutch will fit a phone, small coin purse and your cards and cash. Please note: this is a slim sized clutch, so it will not fit bulkier items like a purse ( please check dimensions below).

    Care and Instructions:

     

    To preserve the life of your unique book clutch, ensure that you avoid any water, spills or damp surfaces and avoid leaving in direct sunlight.

    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.
