ABOUT ANTIKVARIAT
The core of Antikvariat is summarized in our tagline - Vintage Paper Ephemera from Old Europe. Adopting a name from the Czech language which means antiquarian, I strive to bring forth past and forgotten ephemera originating from the old European lands.

What were once "minor transient documents of everyday life" (The Ephemera Society, UK), these vintage and antique items are given a new perspective in today's modern world as a treasured and cherish possession.

Here at Antikvariat I also strive to provide an excellent customer service that will satisfy and delight. From squealing in delight upon a new ephemeral discovery, to the mundane job of manning the Etsy…

THE PERSON BEHIND ANTIKVARIAT
Hello everyone, I am Riz Sedek, the face behind Antikvariat. Moving to the Czech Republic not too long ago, I developed a new favorite pastime - going to the antique book store and flipping through history. I love books and the printed matter. And there is a charm about being in old Europe that makes you go nostalgic all over. So the shop was really born out of these two sentiments coming together. I enjoy flipping through the pages in the antique bookstore, for aged pages and old postcards, looking at typefaces and illustrations of the past.

Everything that is listed here are what I have personally collected. I have a tendency to collect the illustrative, artistic or graphical. I hope to share them with you.

Do drop by my website/blog to have a look at the person behind Antikvariat as I detail the journey that I take here in my adopted home.
