About The Original Book Works
For the last 20 years, we have been manufacturing our top quality faux book products by hand in Cirencester, Gloucestershire. Each product is hand crafted for the highest quality and designed to faithfully reproduce the appearance of leather bound books.
Moulds are carefully made of genuine old books. Then the products are cold cast, using a unique formula to give an exact reproduction.
Each timeless classic is hand painted, gilded and finished and is then given our seal of approval. In these days of growing globalisation, we feel more than ever, that the quality we provide being a UK manufacturer is second to none.
We have expanded our ever-popular range of book accessories for the home and office. At the moment we are working on plans for new products to be introduced in 2013. We are always happy to consider suggestions for new book product accessories, paperweights etc and additions to our antler lighting range.
The clean classical lines of our products look sensational in any setting from a modern house or office, to a stately home.
Faux Book Panels
We have expanded our range of traditional faux book panels. Do look at our video on the home page of our sister site - www.fauxbooks.co.uk to see how easy it is to create a stunning faux book 'hidden door'. You can now include bespoke titles and also personalise a variety of products, like ledger boxes. Most products are available in five traditional colours: tan (brown), antiqued red, forest green, black and vellum (off white).
We continue to expand our range of traditional Faux Book panels and our paperback range is becoming well established. Our paperback book panels are real books, which have been cut down and set into blocks. As normal, we will create panels by hand to fit your requirements exactly.
We have enjoyed a variety of bespoke projects this year, reproducing and creating faux products in a variety of finishes from leather and wood to metals and horn. If you have something you would like reproduced or manufactured, please feel free to contact us to see what we can do.
