Charles Dickens book bag - The Old Curiosity Shop - Handbag made from a book
First published as a book in 1841, The Old Curiosity Shop follows the life of Little Nell and her grandfather. It is a poignant and heart breaking tale of a sweet orphan living in a cozy shop of quaint and curious keepsakes being cast into a bizarre world teeming with villains, tricksters and scoundrels. This elegant edition of this typical Victorian melodrama was found in the local charity shop and has now been given a new lease of life as a Novel Bag. It is lined with a fabric that beautifully compliments the strong colours of the cover and has handles made from an upcycled belt.
With a reinforced spine and measuring 23.5 x 15.8 x 3.8 cm (9.25 x 6.22 x 1.49 in) this bag is able to carry your mobile phone and some other small personal items. Its edges are protected by book corners and it closes with a button and elasticised loop.
It is great gift for a lover of English literature or as a little treat to self. It is the ideal accessory to any outfit and is bound to be a great conversation starter.
Upcycled Book Club is situated in Brunswick, Victoria. If you are in the area, convo me about a local pick up and avoid paying shipping costs.
“The ties that bind the wealthy and the proud to home may be forged on earth, but those which link the poor man to his humble hearth are of truer metal and bear the stamp of Heaven.”
