Book Boxes are a safety devices for hiding small valuables such as money, jewelry, keys, credit cards, and other small valuables on a bookshelf. The idea of having a hollow book dates back to the time of the Victorian era where they were often used to hide personal keepsakes and love letters.
I decided to create my own version for modern use after seeing one of these hollow books in a Sherlock Holmes Mystery movie. I have been producing them since 1992 - finding that they work for my customers just as well as they had a century and a half ago.
Book Boxes are not constructed out of wood or plastic but are made from actual books. Each has a custom fitted interior which is lined in a variety of decorative velvets and fabrics as seen in the photos on this page. look under Buy - Order by Phone or Email to view the wide variety of subjects that are available!
