Liven up your book shelf with this book nook shelf insert.
This is a new design, well sort of! a pared down version of the cosy chair an old fashioned Steampunk library. Time is my most costly material, so I have shaved hours off that to bring this more minimal one, and of course it will be cheaper as less things to make! I made the cosy chair, and I made the piles of books, and the little table. There is a bottle and glass on the little table, and a little pile of books on the left, with a Dracula book on the top. This is set in a book about the Titanic.
The background image, is a photo quality image of a Steampunk library.
There are 8 lights clustered into two shades. These are bright white, so give a nice bright glow.
The battery pack is attached at the back for ease of changing the batteries, and the switch is at the top of the book at the end of the spine.
The book is multicoloured, it measures just under 9 1/2″ tall, the book is just over 6″ deep, 7 ” including battery pack, aprox 3 3/4″ wide. It uses 2 AA batteries.
Hand crafted by me, taking quite a few hours, and made from upcycled books, so please allow for minor blemishes on the outside of the book . Yes I treasure books but lots of unwanted hardback books end up in landfill as they can’t be recycled. Rest assured the pages from the books I use have been removed from the spine, and recycled.
Adult collectors only.
