The Forgotten Library takes inspiration from vintage and antiquarian books and ephemera to create a range of  literary themed gifts.


Our products range from a clock repurposed from a Beatrix Potter story to a glass pendant featuring a book illustration from 120 years ago.  We also have a growing range of cards and bookmarks featuring classic literature.


Find unique items to treat yourself or give as a thoughtful gift.  If there is a particular book or topic that you are looking for do get in touch.


We also sell a range of vintage often with a literary or library association.


Due to the individual nature of the book clocks it is not possible to have every clock for sale through my online marketplaces such as Etsy.  I am also unable to display the full range on a craft stall at the events I will be attending.  Consequently I'm listing all the clocks I have for the winter season that are not in my online shops here and will be updating it to account for sales and new makes when I can.  If there is a title you are interested in please send an e-mail and I can send you photos/measurements and create a Paypal invoice or Etsy listing if you wish to purchase it.
