Vintage The Village Bookworm from Canal Town Series handcrafted from 3/4" thick wood by The Cat's Meow Village in the USA

3.5" x 4.5"
Canal Town

This ¾” thickThe Village Bookworm is hand screen printed on the front with a short description on the back. It is part of a four-piece series called Canal Town Series, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her twenty-fourth year of business. This series was introduced in 2006.

By 1850, almost 1,000 miles of canals crossed Ohio and with these canals, towns and economies grew. A small store, like this bookstore, would have been able to expand their goods and services by ordering books from the East and having them delivered via the canal.

Look for our trademark black cat, Casper, on every Cat’s Meow. Handcrafted in our Wooster, Ohio workshop.

There are a limited number of this piece available, which is reflected in the price. With your purchase of this building, Faline will donate 10% to Amani Ya Juu, a fair-trade sewing and training program for marginalized women throughout Africa. Visit their website: (no wholesale orders)
