Natalie Portman was recently seen on the red carpet carrying an upcycled vintage-book clutch; the bookish Harvard grad might also favor a one-of-a-kind Book Clock, $49, by Swedish designer Hilda Grahnat. Here, a vintage copy of Mary Stewart's 1958 gothic suspense novel Nine Coaches Waiting (translated into Swedish) counts down the minutes, powered by an AA battery: ideal for the bibliophile.
