Secret Books

Marin Montagut created this object, which has become iconic, taking inspiration from 18th century books called secret books or hiding books.

These books were hollowed out to create a cavity, in order to be able to hide a deck of cards, precious objects, in a library, protected from the anonymity of a row of real books.

Marin Montagut’s “Secret Books” collection is made of papier-mâché, entirely made and painted by hand in his workshops in Paris. They are also numbered and signed by the artist.
The interior is covered with marbled paper and contains a ribbon with a metal trinket in the shape of a key at the end.
