For the lush who has everything: Hollowed-out A.A. ‘Big Book’ reveals a hidden hooch flask

What better place to store your hooch than in an Alcoholics Anonymous “Big Book?”

Punnily-named Etsy seller SleepyHollowedBooks deals exclusively in hand-made hollowed-out books, or “book safes.”

Another one of their listings first caught my eye, a hollowed-out Holy Bible that houses a paperback of LaVey’s The Satanic Bible.
 

Guaranteed to get you into Hell (if you believe in that sort of thing).
 
But it’s the A.A. book with the hidden flask that really won me over, conceptually. Pure genius.

This booze-safe is made from a copy of Alcoholics Anonymous, Fourth Edition from 2001. The cover is blue faux leather with gold print.

This is a one-of-a-kind item and may go fast. The price is $39, which is actually kind of a steal for a hand-made item that includes a flask.

According to the seller, the first two pages are not glued down, so at first glance, it appears to be a normal book. The book is glued with three layers of Mod Podge, reinforced inside with brad nails, and glued to the back with wood glue.
 

 

 
You can find more hollowed-out book treasures at the seller’s Etsy shop. The seller also offers a hollowed-out book on first-year parenting with a hidden flask.

You know when you need to be covert with your boozy needs? What about a baby doll flask? Seriously, your friends and family won’t be the wiser. Okay, of course they’ll know ‘cause A) you don’t have a goddamned baby and B) it’s plastic for pete’s sake. And C) you’re as drunk as a skunk sucking on a plastic baby head.

Perhaps it’s best suited for smuggling hooch into sporting events or concerts? You know, from afar?


 
The flask, created by Simon Philion, is called Cool Baby. It’s on Kickstarter right now with a goal of $70,000. So far it’s reached around $10k.

Below, an instructional video on when and how to use Cool Baby:
