These seem to be what I am most know for. These are real books, "hollowed-out", so that a miniature vignette setting can be placed inside. These are usually lit with nite-lite bulbs, but other lighting can be arranged. They come with a door, if desired, and also a viewing window. Some are papered with book end-paper and all are ready to "move-in". My stock is never the same so some of these bookboxes that I'm showing are no longer available, just typical. (Prices starting at $175) For pictures that are shown as thumbnails, to see a larger view click on the thumbnail. To return to where you were, use your back arrow on your browser.

A typical book box with corner corner and interior
Listing of boxes that are presently in stock, some have pictures.
This is a different type of "bookroom". It's dimensions were 13" x 13' x 18 1/2" tall. This is a special arrangement made from 2 large ledger covers. The covers are placed in an "S" type arrangement with plexiglass on the sides and top. The interior is done with replaceable lights, hand laid teak flooring, a mirror to give the illusion of extra depth. The window in the front was completely made from scratch. It is sold

These are all boxes that are sold but thought you might enjoy seeing.
These are all 1" to 1' scale (1/12)
