Vintage book shoulder purses

From $175

These beautiful vintage books were chosen to become shoulder purses because of their size, durability and attractive covers. Choose from your favorite author, artist-illustrated cover or Art Nouveau design.  Size, color and length of shoulder strap design all come into play when you want to wear your shoulder bag. Your straps can be long and cross your chest, hang from your shoulder to your hip or tuck under your arm. You decide what style you want to wear.  All shoulder straps on existing vintage book purses can have the length adjusted at no extra charge.

A Note From Kathleen

It is important to remember that these vintage book purses are old and in as-found condition. I clean, repair and preserve the book covers but some have minor wear and tear that will still be visible.  All book spines have been triple-reinforced with archival linen book tape, and new book board has been added for longevity.  Leather has been waterproofed, fabric covers have been treated with Scotchgard® and paper litho boards have been triple-coated to prevent water damage. All vintage book purses come with a vintage button as a simple loop closure.  Each book purse has either one or two interior pockets for credit cards and licenses, depending on the size of the book.  I designed your vintage book purse so that the fabric lining holds all the weight distribution, so you really can use your book purse.
