Love this


The mystery of the Phantom Journal. It will keep you guessing!

This is a fully working clock, made from a vintage book. It measures between a6 - a5 size & cleverly holds a reliable quartz clock. On the back is a metal sawtooth hanger for hanging on the wall. The clock is accessed from the back also for replacing the single AA battery (not included) & adjusting the clock hands.

This item is ready to send & will be posted to you securely boxed.

We have lots of old books waiting to be transformed into clocks. If you have a topic in mind, do get in touch & we'll see if we can find what you're looking. We can also make your book into a clock for £15. Just contact us to arrange.


This book was an orphan without a home or anyone to love it. Repurposed as a book clock, this lonely book can find a home again! Adopt this book & have a companion to mark the hours for years to come!
