Vintage book tablet purses

From $195

I was so excited when I discovered these larger vintage books were just the right size to hold iPads and tablets because they are so prevalent in our culture today. And being showcased and protected in a vintage shoulder book or hand held book purse is so much more dignified than being tucked into an everybody-has-one nylon case. Many of these larger vintage books have a delicious subject matter, which makes wearing them even more exciting. With a sturdy shoulder strap or various handles, and reinforced spine, these tablet book purses will hold every make and model out there. Just send me your tablet’s specifications (size) or bring it with you at my next show and try it on every available tablet purse. Just in case, I have the specifications for every model tablet available. I would hate for you to not have the perfect home for your tablet!

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.
