This novel by Henry James was published in 1881 and has endured as one of James's finest and most popular novels. It tells the story of Isabel Archer who, while travelling in Europe, falls for the scheming of two Americans who ultimately betray her. The story explores the differences between the Old World and the New World which was one of James' favourite themes.

This charming edition was found in the local charity shop and has been upcycled into this cute handbag. Lined with a fabric that beautifully compliments the cover design, gold books corners to protect its edges and a gold chain handle it is sure to be a great conversation starter.

It has a reinforced spine and measures 20.5 x 13.3 x 3 cm (8.07 x 5.23 x 1.18 in) it can carry your phone and a few other small personal items. This gorgeous bag is the perfect accessory for any outfit and is an ideal gift for book lover in your life or as a treat for yourself.

“...he had long decided that abundant laughter should be the embellishment of the remainder of his days.”
