Typographic art printed onto vintage dictionary pages using Bookishly's exclusive hand drawn font for this Cicero quote.

"A room without books is like a body without a soul."

This wonderful quote is the perfect gift for your favourite book-lover. Printed onto the page of an antique dictionary using Bookishly's exclusive hand-drawn font, it can't fail to charm! Whether it adorns the library in the east wing or the reading nook by the fire, it will be a constant reminder of why we love books so much.

The page is taken from an old medium school dictionary and measures approx 14cm x 20cm (approx 5.5 inches x 8 inches). There is approx 0.3cm of black frame showing around the page, and the frame is 3cm deep. The dimensions of these dictionaries can vary by a few centimeters sometimes, as getting hold of consistent sizes is quite difficult! Please let me know if you need the exact dimensions of the print you will receive.

An original book page is used each time, making each piece unique to you. The frames are made using ethically sourced wood and are gift wrapped using a beautiful old road atlas.

The black wooden block frames are handmade in Northamptonshire using wood sourced from sustainably managed forests. They stand up by themselves or hang flush to the wall, and look great on a bookshelf. The frames are lightweight and contain no glass so you can feel the lovely old page. I hunt down the books in local charity shops and second hand book dealers.
