French Hen

Whether you love birds, French food, Julia Child or all three, this charming birdhouse is sure to have your mouth watering.

Handmade from a vintage French Chef Cookbook by Julia Child, this ornamental birdhouse is covered by the title page, two recipe pages, and a picture of Julia and features the rest of the book as a roof. The finishing touch? A perch made out of a mini wooden mixing spoon. Handmade by Dave Vissat in Pennsylvania.

For decorative indoor use only.

Artist Dave Vissat spends his days as a creative director for a Pittsburgh advertising agency. But for the last ten years, he has spent his nights creating one-of-a-kind birdhouses out of vintage books.

Vissat stumbled upon this idea when he was making a birdhouse for his mother. He ran out of wood, so he resorted to using an old book as a roof. Then he began incorporating interesting text and illustrations as well. Now, Vissat searches and scavenges flea markets and libraries for discarded and vintage books, then he scans the cover, makes a print and affixes it to the exterior of the house.
