The Best Books Have Booze Hidden In Them

Illustration for article titled The Best Books Have Booze Hidden In Them

If later today you're planning to try and shy away from your family by reading a book, I have a great suggestion for you: choose one which contains a bottle of scotch.


The guys over at Bender Bound have created the best books ever. Just like those books from the movies that have a hole cut through the pages to store away secrets, Bender Bounder's weighty tomes contain a a hollow space.

The difference is, though, that void is just the right size for... booze! Glorious liquor.

There's one for everyone: medics can choose a copy of Gray's Anatomy with a glug of gin, lawyers might like the Federal Supplement filled with fino, or if you're really desperate, how about a plain old dictionary containing a bottle of Jack Daniel's?

They're available for pre-order now. What are you waiting for? [Bender Bound via Lowering The Bar via Boing Boing]

I used to work in a book bindery when I was 18 years old (1970), and my father who'd worked there since the 1940s, had a great way to make hollow books that looked really good. I worked there for 3 years, and I made a few myself, in various sizes I think still have a few of them. My favorite one was one that I titled Savage Pellucidar, which I thought was clever on my part.
