Book Safe

I have a small obsession: Hollow Book Safes. There is something beautifully intriguing about hidden secret book compartments. I don’t really understand the amount of joy this brings me. But here we are. Book Rooks over on Etsy has a beautiful collection to chose from.

  1. They’re so inviting though!

  2. I too love these bibliophile slight of hand. This type of design even has its own category: blooks. In 2016, the Grolier Club mounted an exhibit on blooks and there is a wonderful (real) book of the exhibit.

  3. I made something similar for my sons’ Christmas gifts. Hollowed out just enough space to tuck an iPhone inside a book. I’ll be smiling over the memory – especially how sweetly my husband and I were thanked for the books, before they discovered the phones – until I die.
