Design Porn: Vintage Novel Clutch Bags

  

Lovely bag, lovely bag...


Argh! It's a book bag!
A bag that's a book!
I mean - it's novel!
Or a novel.
Oh God, I need a lie down.

I've very rudely been keeping these wonderful clutch bags from my friends at The Literary Gift Company to myself (they're not actually my friends. I would just like to be friends with them. Can you imagine what their home must look like? I die.)

These bags come with two straps - one shoulder, one short - so you can have your beautiful bag however you like. Even the lining is printed to look like book pages, and they have The End printed on the back. SWOON. They're designed by Disaster Designs who I LOVE.


One for your punctual friend: beautiful faded red leather effect - it's actually PVC - on A Timely Engagement.


Stunning font on A Forbidden Love ... although suddenly The End is feeling a bit abrupt. What if it stopped being forbidden? What if everything worked out brilliantly? What if? Oh, sod it. Keep your sexy intrigue, and flaunt it on the end of your arm.

Beyond The Garden of Eden bag
Feeling dreamy? Why not. Take Robert Coward's hand and let him and take you away from it all. Cornwall, apparently.
 
Erm...I don't want to play favourites, but this beautiful! Gorgeous! Stunning! Paradise at last Found clutch bag is clearly my favourite. The lilac-grey cover! Those wonderful floral illustrations taking me straight back to Cicely M Barker and her army of Flower Fairies. Completely dreamy and utterly beautiful.

Or maybe it's this one. Look at the lovely brass fittings on the corners of Lost in the Apothecary! Plus more flowers. Plus more gorgeous red. Gah.

Each of these lovely bags is £36. Job done. Happy days. The End.

  1. Love them! And I'm so pleased they come with shoulder straps. I can't deal with clutch bags. They look great, but then I get bored of carrying. After about five seconds.

  2. I love the attention to detail in these, the lining is lovely. And all for £36 - to think of all the times I've wailed over not being able to afford the Kate Spade or Olympia Le-Tan book bags. Great find!
