Old things are not necessarily things you have to throw away in the garbage. They can very well be considered cool and vintage and, with a bit of imagination, they can be turned into something else, a totally unexpected result and an object that will be used as something else. This Cool Book Clock is the perfect example that you should take a closer look at the hings you want to throw and keep the ones that are really beautiful. This clock is actually a normal clock mechanism that is afterwards placed inside a vintage hardbook cover.
Instead of the interior pages that had been removed, the designer called Hilda Grahnat used an ingenious solution and used some bits of wood that look very similar to the original look. Only if you come closer and look at the clock really attentively you will realize the absence of paper sheets and will notice the wood. There are many models and covers used and this particular one with a blue background and stylized white and green leaves is called “The teahouse of the August Monn”, after the name of the book written by Vern Steiner. This clock runs on a LR6/AA battery and sells for $45.
