Blue OCTOPUS - Original Art Print- OCTOPUS art featured on HGTV, dictionary antique book page print

♥ Our Blue Octopus Print was featured on the Dear Genevieve Show on HGTV!! Thank you so much Genevieve!!

♥We found this Octopus Book Plate in an antique book in Maine. We love to go antiquing. He was a dull gray and we colorized him a gorgeous blue. For all of our Octopus lovers, another Octopus for you♥

♥Photo 4 shows the actual antique book page we found our Octopus in!

♥This listing is for one Antique Blue Water Dance Print. We have several other Water Dancer's using the same Octopus. You can see them in our "Ocean Life " Section of our shop.

♥♥♥ OUR ORIGINAL DESIGN & CONCEPT ♥♥♥

♥♥ You may order your print with NO BANNER or the quote of your choice on those prints that have banners. All of our prints may be ordered on MUSIC sheet book pages too. Please leave us a note when checking out as to your preference.

♥ Paper: We use gorgeous antique book pages from 1883-1890. The pages are two and three column pages with borders, considered in that day to be high end publishing as opposed to the common three page column, no border style used for lower budget publishing. The pages were printed in the 1800's by running the page through first for the text, then back again through the printer for the beautiful borders.

♥♥ We are the first shop to use the book pages for our prints which come from four separate books. All of which are represented in the photos of our prints. We spent an enormous amount of time researching to find our beautiful book pages for you before opening our shop in Feb 2010. The books we use are very rare and very expensive. We are also the first shop to use banners and quotes. All which are apart of our Black Baroque signature style.

♥ Print Size: The page size is 8 x 10 inches or 20.3 x 25.4 cm.

♥ Illustrations: All of our illustrations are dated from the time period between the 16th and 18th centuries. We have been collecting rare antique books for years. We have antiquarian book dealers who search for engravings, lithographs, chromolithographs, for us in the USA and in Europe. Our favorite books are miniature books from one inch to 1.5 inches in size, gold leafed pages, leather bound. Our favorite of all our collection of antique books is an antique Cinderella Book you can see on our flickr page. The link is in our profile.

♥ About your print: You will receive one book page but not the exact book page as shown in this listing as they come from one book making each page one of a kind. Please keep in mind that one of the reasons we use antique books pages besides their beauty and that they make for an interesting read, is to also to recycle giving them new life. We find that there is a loss of love of antique books except with antiquarian collectors and dealers, and in using antique book pages we feel we are helping to keep a part of history and its beauty alive. In the spirit of saving the past and recycling, we use book pages for our prints that have character flaws with spotting, uneven printing and corner bending adding antique charm to the pages. All of our book pages have that gorgeous golden color that only comes from age.

♥ The frame is not included. We do not sell them and we do not know where you can buy them.

♥ Your print will be packaged in a clear plastic sleeve, with a cardboard insert to protect the print while being shipped. It is shipped in a large white mailer.

♥ The prints hanging in the room photos are enlarged only so that you may see them more clearly as an example of them on a wall. The actual size is not depicted.

♥ We offer Flat Rate Shipping to all of our customers all around the world. Flat rate shipping means you are only charged one price per order no matter how many prints you buy. For example: if you order 10 prints, and you live in the USA, you would be charged only $3 to ship all of your prints.

♥ Please read our shop policies before purchasing.

♥ We hold the copyrights to all of our prints.

♥ Delighted you stopped by ♥
Alexandra & Poni
