Our World in Space and Time Bookgammon™ Set Hollow Book Safe


Though published in 1960, this striking red book SCREAMS the 50s! Aside from making it a Bookgammon™ set, all the work on it was done in the 50s, so it makes sense for it to exude that decade. I could see it on Richie Cunningham’s shelf, and if that’s the case, it couldn’t be more innocent and all-American. If that doesn’t sell this sucker, nothing will. That won’t stop me from trying, though. I generally tend to take the best books I find and make them into backgammon sets (unless the title is ideal for another category), and this one is no exception.

This beautiful book(gammon) compliments any Space, and backgammon’s a great way to kill Time. That’s our World. It’s probably worth mentioning that you can also HIDE stuff in this. How many more uses do you need? I mean, it comes with washers, so like, if you needed a washer, you’re covered. If that’s not enough, perhaps you’re just too hard to please. Just saying.
