Upcycled Book Club

Lost Horizon Novel Bag - James Hilton - Upcycled book - Bag made from a book

When Lost Horizon was published in 1933, it captured the public's imagination with its tale of a lost paradise. James Hilton’s famous utopian, adventure novel is the origin of the mythical sanctuary known as Shangri-La and tells the story of a plane with 4 passengers that crashes near an ancient and unchartered lamasery in the deep and forbidding wilderness of Tibet. It is a land of eerie beauty and complete tranquility, but their adventure has just begun.

This stunning edition of this classic work of literature was discovered in a charity shop and has been upcycled into this gorgeous handbag. Its beautiful gold and silver cover design of the hilltop sanctuary is perfectly complimented by the lining fabric, gold findings and book corners and the handles made from an upcycled belt and gold chain.

It measures 23.5 x 15.5 x 2.6 cm (9.25 x 6.1 x .78 in), has a reinforced spine and closes with a feature button and elasticised loop. It is a one-of-a-kind bag that is sure to draw comment wherever you go. It is the perfect gift for any lover of literature or as a special treat for yourself.

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 first quarter-century of your life was doubtless lived under the cloud of being too young for things, while the last quarter-century would normally be shadowed by the still darker cloud of being too old for them; and between those two clouds, what small and narrow sunlight illumines a human lifetime!”
