This clock was handcrafted from a real recycled Japanese book. It's a beautiful piece of home decor with Japanese flair. It will look great standing on a bookshelf, night stand or anywhere in your home.

This clock is handcrafted from a real Japanese book titled, "A Painted House" by John Grisham translated into Japanese, then upcycled to serve as a unique decorative timepiece. The book was hollowed out to accommodate a standard quarts clock mechanism that runs on one AA battery (not included). Please note, Japanese books open from right to left (the opposite of books in English), so this clock does as well.

The pages for the mechanism chamber was sealed together, while the remaining pages remain free. The original ribbon bookmark (many Japanese books feature these ribbons), remains in place, adding to the effect of the beautiful clock.

Book: 7 5/8" x 5 1/2" x 1 3/8"
Please note the second and minute hands extend past the side edges of the book

This book was once part of a public library. It was recovered from the Iwakuni recycle plant where it could have been eventually destroyed.

This book will ship with the fragile hands removed and placed inside the book to protect them. They assemble easy by sliding them onto the clock stem. You simply slide them in place, set the time, insert the battery and enjoy!
