From Russia with love, these book cover messenger bags crafted by two Russian artisans are divine and we want them all! Krukrustudio is a miscellaneous online shop which promises a wealth of cool nerdy items for the fandoms to throw their money at. Their Etsy headline reads, “Felt bags, geek stuff, nerd fashion, unique gifts!!” and there’s certainly something for everyone who can afford their wares. Their book cover messenger bags are made in either leather or felt, feature popular book covers, and include the first page from said book printed under the flap of the bag.
The hefty price tag might not be a bad thing, as each book bag is designed, crafted, and shipped with the utmost care and attention to detail. They go beyond flimsy fandom creations you might find at your local mall and mirror the kind of dedication cosplayers put into their elaborate costumes. Take a glance at the gallery below of some of our top book bag picks! The literary obligatory Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice is naturally a simple and charming choice. The Necronomicon bag takes H.P. Lovecraft’s fictional grimoire to the next level with the stunning first page included! And you can never go wrong with one of the many Harry Potter covers; here it’s printed using the new illustration by Kazu Kibuishi and the UK title, Harry Potter & Philosopher’s Stone. It’s also great to see some love for American fantasy author, Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series with a sleek cover design for The Eye of the World.
Don’t see a favorite book of yours? Fear not, they do “Upon Order” requests for “a book bag ANY COLOR, ANY AUTHOR in English or other language.” And with that we salute you, nerdy artisans of the world!
