19th century illustration printed directly on to a page salvaged from a dictionary.

Dimensions and Mounting:
The actual book page measures 9 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches and is mounted on a sheet of 10 x 8 acid free, black card stock (as seen in the photograph). This standard size should make it easy to slip into a frame.

Frame is NOT Included:
*The frame shown in the listing is a sample only and is not included. I recommend scoping out your local second hand store. I've found great vintage frames that way and they look fantastic with this sort of print! The card-stock dimensions should make it easy to find a frame of your choosing anywhere.

*Please be aware that some pages have old book character, i.e. creases, bends, yellowing, spotting and possible missing corners. I think these slight defects add to the charm of the print.

I only use imagery that is hi-resolution (300 DPI+). This means no fuzzy prints! :)


I ship each print in an acid free plastic sleeve slipped between two pieces of corrogated cardboard in a padded envelope. Prints are shipped via USPS First Class Mail.



Dictionary Prints combine two of my favorite things, old books and vintage illustration. I have decorated my entire house with them and have no more room! I wanted to keep making them, so I decided to set up shop here on Etsy. They look just gorgeous hung in groups. I think they look especially striking in old fashion ornate frames.

Make sure to visit my store for more selections, I am posting new prints daily!


Thank you so much for looking, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

I have unfortunately experienced many problems in the past with the redistribution of my artwork without my permission. Because of this digital files of my designs are not available in any format.
Sure! I am happy to change the direction that the animal is facing from how it is shown in the listing image. Just leave me a note at Checkout that you would like it flipped.
Yes, they do well on windows, the metal of cars and any clean, smooth non-porous surface. Note that outdoor durability is approximately 3 years.
I usually recommend the 5" size for cars, but it really depends on how prominent you want the sticker to be. Please see the Item Details of the design you are interested in for exact dimensions.
No. The stickers are made of adhesive vinyl. They are removable but in most cases are NOT reusable. The stickers are NOT magnetic.
The stickers are cut directly out of vinyl, they consist of the shape only, there is no background. The heart is cut from the silhouette and will appears as the same color of the surface you are applying the sticker to. For instance, if you are attaching a white sticker to a yellow car, the heart would appear yellow. The same applies to any text that is in the body of the silhouette. Text that is underneath is the same color as the silhouette.
