Love this


What better way to tell your wife or mum just how great she is.

A fully working clock, this vintage book has a gorgeous cover. & the reliable clockworks will keep you on time for all your appointments. The quartz clock mechanism is accessed at the back where you can adjust the time & replace the single AA battery (not included). It is a little smaller than an a5 book. Your book clock will come securely boxed, perfect for giving as a gift to that special someone, or indeed ones self!

This item is ready to go & will be posted out in 1-3 days.

We have a whole bookshelf of beautiful, quirky vintage books waiting their turn to be upcycled into a lovely clock. If you're looking for something with a different subject or for someone special, do get in touch & we'll have a rummage & see what we can find.


We've transformed a few Louisa May Alcott books into clocks for customers & this has to be the most beautiful one yet. The cover is truly beautiful & we chose the clock hands with care to compliment the cover design.
