Why Choose UsENQUIRYBROCHURE

We have been commissioned to undertake faux book projects all over the world.


Our prestigious projects list starts with the Kings Library at the British Museum and includes National Trust properties, TV and film sets (‘Forsyte Saga', ‘On becoming Jane') and most recently working for Laurence LLewelyn Bowen on his Manor house home near Cirencester.


We have created faux book doors, cupboards and shelf fillers for grand houses in London, country estates and many, many lovely homes throughout the UK and abroad where the use of faux books has added interest and character.


We have completed restaurant projects in New York, Hotels in Paris, Biarritz and Gstadd, ‘English pubs' in Japan, cruise liners that sail the world.


Original Book Works offers the widest range of styles - antique leather look books, vellum (cream) look or modern contemporary paperbacks.


We manufacture our products here in Cirencester and can adapt to a wide range of situations - hiding the door to a cloakroom under the stairs, turning a row of plain wardrobe doors into a beautiful bookcase of faux books, disguising a large TV as a bookcase. We have been employed to hide away all the functional trappings of a home office, media systems and many hidden room doorways. It is really surprising how having a faux book door can change the feel to a room.


Our skilled workforce have years of experience in casting, staining and gilding these handmade products to the high standard our customers demand of us. We are happy to discuss you project with you to cover every detail.


Our price to you includes:


A free sample and catalogue if required to help finalise your initial planning decisions and our expertise in suggesting how many rows of faux books your project requires. When we have agreed your requirements with you we do a mock up here in our workshops. We will then send your false books packed row by row with an overall plan - all you need to do is stick them onto your door or prepared surface. This is at no extra cost. We do all the hard work here for you.


The quality and layouts are independently checked before they leave our workshops as we always want you to be entirely happy with your finished project.


We are pleased to say that increasingly our customers tell us that they have been recommended to contact us or are designers or furniture makers who have used our service before and are happy to come back to us again.
