No, someone didn’t tear up early editions of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to make clutch purses. Nor did she tear up early editions of The Tale of Pigling Bland, Lolita, The Phantom of the Opera, nor various editions of Alices Adventures in Wonderland. And thank goodness for that!
Instead, the cover art is printed on cotton fabric and the corners bound with metal to protect the purse and finish the look.
Each purse is handmade by Jessica Bermudez Bautista (known on Etsty as psBesitos) in Sienna, Italy, and runs 50 euros. That’s roughly $66.17, USD, plus shipping.
Oh, and if you don’t want it as a clutch, you can purchase the separate chain and have it attached.
