Create your own treasures.

Vintage Crafts and Designs from aged Books.

Books contain an endless amount of treasures.
At Mystery Manufacture x Buchkiste we want to uncover the treasures of every book, especially the old, unwanted ones.
Get inspired by the various possibilities of upcycling books into treasures!

Hollow Books

Hollowing a book transforms it into an unique and surprising treasure chest. It is perfect for storing unexpected gifts or hiding your personal treasures.

Crafting Paper

If an old book lost its good shape, its beautiful paper can still serve multiple valuable purposes like unique vintage origami figures, scrapbooking paper or festive decoration.

Printable Designs

Every book ages in different ways. To preserve the unique vintage beauty of aged books, we want to make it accessible digitally to encourage creative vintage projects.
