Treasure Island Evening Book Clutch
Elegant Robert Louis Stephenson's Treasure Island evening book clutch, featuring an original vintage hard cover.
This is the perfect match in a book clutch - a fusion of vintage and elegance. The evening clutch has a pretty bow on the lapel and black satin ribbing. The beauty of this book clutch is that you can wear on either side - showcasing either the book cover or the black lapel of the clutch. This is an upcycled, bespoke creation - only one in stock!
The lining of the clutch has a satin sheen and a slip pocket that will hold small keepsakes. The clutch will fit a phone, cards/coins and cash ( therefore, it will not fit bulkier items like a purse or wallet.) This is a stunning book clutch that you could wear to dinner or down the street - and definately turn heads!
Please note: The preloved book is of a vintage age and in very good condition, but has some very minor discolouration on the edges of the spine - please see photographs for reference. This will not detract from the look of this unique, stunning clutch.
Width: 3.5cms at base, 3cms at top of clutch.
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 not been laminated and is in original vintage condition – so please treat your clutch in the same way that you would a beloved and treasured ( Island) 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,
