Los Angeles designer Steven Gabriel turns old titles, many of which are one-of-a-kind books, into simple working clocks that can be hung on the wall. Gabriel adds clock hands that are battery powered. He often chooses them based on the cover art and colors. Though, in the case of Dr. Seuss classics, several have been made of the same title. Vintage Clock Books was launched in 2010 and the handmade treasures are currently sold through Etsy for anywhere between $35 and $165 depending on the rarity of the book used.
