Trixie Belden Book Clutch
  • Trixie Belden Book Clutch



    This fabulously vintage book purse features an original Trixie Belden hardcover, titled 'Trixie Belden and the Mystery in Arizona.' This is a bespoke creation and only one in stock. Trixie Belden is the title character in a series of mystery novels written between 1948-1986. Throughout the series, Trixie and her best friend Honey solve mysteries that baffle local authorities. 


    The book cover has been matched with an upcycled charcoal and silver purse, that perfectly complements the bright, orange of the book cover. The purse can fit coins, cards and cash and has a small plastic window for you to pop in a photo or whatever your heart desires. 


    The book cover is in excellent condition, considering its old age. This is a perfect gift for a vintage-loving book nerd or diehard Trixie Belden fan!

    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,
