upcycled hardback books. This Booknook diorama has led lights in it, and is
made to fit on your bookshelf, but you can also use it as a bedside light, on a

This is a room with a library bookcase. I made the book nook itself, the cosy
chair, the table, the bookcase, pictures and knick knacks, the pictures and the
heaps of books myself. I try and made most of the contents myself, a lot from
things that were destined for recycling.
There are mirrors that reflect everything in the room, giving it the
appearance of having further rooms off to the sides. There is a cosy chair and
a table with a bottle of something nice and a glass. There are some fab works
of art on the walls. The bookcase is heaped with books, and various little
knick knacks mingled in with the books. These are timer lights, turn them on (
switch goes to middle setting) and they will switch off themselves after 6
hours, they also repeat, so if you turn them on at 6pm at night, they will
switch themselves off at 12 pm, and they will do this every night at the same
time , they also have a normal on/off setting.

are warm white lights so give a nice warm glow, they are battery operated and
take 2 AA batteries. The battery pack is located at the top of the spine,
meaning you don’t have to move it to switch the light on and off. The book is

battery pack. Hand crafted by me taking quite a few hours, and made from modern
day, in great condition, upcycled hardback books, but please allow for minor
blemishes on the outside of the book. Yes I treasure books, but thousands upon
thousand are sent to landfill each year as they can’t be recycled, so I remove
the pages from these so they can be recycled.
Adult collectors only.
