DOWNTON ABBEY WOMAN -Dictionary art print- Upcycled antique book page print
The print illustrates one of the unforgettable sayings of Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham, magisterially interpreted by Dame Maggie Smith: "I'm a woman, I can be as contrary as I choose!".
This art print is made on a page from a French political economy dictionary published in Paris, in 1864. The print will come provided with an A4 (21 x 29.7 cm) white back page so as to be ready to be matted or framed. This way the very old and fragile page will not crumple or tear.
The French dictionary page is approx 6" x 9.5" (15 x 24 cm).
Each print is individually and carefully printed on a unique antique book page which truly makes it a one of a kind work of art. The page has the golden shade which only age can provide. This kind of re-purposing allows an old book to live on in new, revered form. The books I upcycle are vintage and some are over 150 years old. So each page may have minor imperfections but I am careful to use only the best pages for your antique prints, which means that only one in about 5 to ten pages will be used.
The print you are offered here for purchase will display the illustration you see but the book page itself may differ.
** MATTING **
The items you may purchase do not come matted and do not come in frame. You will receive only the printed book page, made with a high quality laser printer, for the best colors possible.
If you like, you can purchase the matting service. You may find the complete description of the matting service here:https://www.etsy.com/listing/118647218/matting-service-antique-book-page
You may see some examples of the matted product in the additional images.
** SHIPPING **
All prints are shipped within two business days after payment is received. They are shipped in rigid, stay flat mailers and are protected in plastic sleeves.
This item is shipped via Romanian Air Mail First Class, a great service, but no tracking number is provided. I strongly recommend you to upgrade your shipping and buy a Registered Shipping with Tracking Number: in my experience, the items sent with Registered AirMail arrive 2-4 days faster than Regular AirMail and none of the packages sent with Registered Airmail was lost.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. If you don't see a print you would like, please ask! I would be happy to receive suggestions for new prints! Your satisfaction is my goal.
