A New Role for Antiquarian Books: "Intellectual" Clutch Bags by Olympia Le-Tan

An intellectual in Hollywood?
Natalie Portman's 'Lolita' clutch, described in a December 4 article in the Los Angeles Times online, got a lot of attention. The "clutch" by French designer Olympia Le-Tan, is one of a limited edition of only 16 of each title in a series of "intellectual clutch bags" featuring hand-stitched versions of selected book titles from the 19th and 20th centuries.

The British newspaper the Telegraph has a slideshow of Olympia Le-Tan's clutches, with a peek inside Lolita with its snazzy purple-and-green print cover.
