I call these little gadgets "My Book Buddy". They are one-handed book holders, handmade in my Colorado shop. No computers, lasers or other forms of automation are used in making these unique gifts.
This one is made of Pink Ivory from African...one of the rarest woods on earth. Pink ivory was the royal tree of the Zulu People and only members of the royal family were allowed to possess it until the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. According to rumor, non-royals who possessed the wood, would be put to death.
My Book Buddys measure approximately 5.0" long x 1.5" tall x 0.5" thick, and are very light weight at around 11 grams (0.4 ounces). As they are 100% handmade, each Book Buddy will be unique, and may vary slightly from the photos. The thumb holes measure a little larger than 7/8" in diameter and should accommodate even the largest hands.
Book Buddies will make the perfect gift for that special book worm in your life. Take them to church to hold hymnals open, or use them while reading your favorite book at the library, coffee shop or anywhere else. Fits perfectly in your pocket, bag or purse.
A gift bag and signed card will be included with every Book Buddy. Order several and save on shipping.
