The designers at Vintage Book Clocks [1] appreciate both bookmaking and literature as respected art forms. They seek to present books as functional pieces of art by re-contextualizing their covers and contents. Book Design, typography and materials all are considered when treating a book.

In today’s digital age, more and more research and troubleshooting is done online. The book clock serves as an analogue reminder of “The way things were”, so to speak.
