You’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but it’s ok to be a little shallow when you wear them around your neck. This darling Autumnal Library Necklace has a cluster of 11 books that are covered in a variety of vintage leathers sourced from Victorian doctor bags, mid-century sofas and vintage wallets &c. Take a look inside and the tiny hand bound pages are left blank for you to keep a personal journal or leave as is. This statement piece reads well (ha!) with any ensemble and makes a fantastic holiday gift for your closest bookworm buddy. A bounty of autumnal coloured books to adorn the most voracious of readers! My books are made using archival insides and antique outsides. Inside you'll find line-less strathmore drawing paper - thick, hand-torn, acid-free pages that work perfectly with ink, pens both thick and superfine, pencil, charcoal, and myriad other mediums. the pages are each hand sewn with archival linen binder's thread. The books' covers are made using hand-picked scraps and worn leather from wherever I can find them, cut to fit the appropriate size. The books can be carried daily and beat up. They are quite strong creatures.11 books. 20 in / 50.8 cm long (center chain).
