Beeton’s Book of Household Management
by Jonathon Cape 1977 Edition
This particular secret pocket is in the shape of the pastry lover’s Croquembouche! Opening out to the Chapter heading titled Puff Paste!
A super thick book for lovers of cooking means there is plenty to read as well as plenty of room to hide the key to the pantry or the key to someone’s heart!
This book is 65mm thick and this particular book pocket is 28mm deep, leaving 37mm of the most hilarious information from the 1861 original edition.
Foolhouse’s character-filled vintage books are rescued and sourced for their alluring titles and covers – transformed into unique secret treasure book safes. Each one is a limited edition – a one-off! All are given a Foolhouse bookplate so that you can write a message to yourself or dedicate the instant heirloom to a lucky gift recipient!
All books come complete with their original inscriptions or bookplate awards and are personality filled with individual weathering and foxing giving them a unique – all the better to fool those burglars with and easily passed over on the book shelf!
Every Foolhouse booksafe is lovingly carved and glued and enhanced by vintage ribbon bookmarks. Plus, inside every book, an illustration is specifically chosen to line the secret pocket.
These Foolhouse Secret Vintage Booksafes are a unique bespoke gift for anyone of any age.

If you’ve managed to read this far, you will find out that I often have many more secret vintage booksafes on my shelf in the studio or in the process of being made-up, so please if you’re looking for something special for someone special, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and enquire as to what I have that has not made it up onto my website yet.
