I wish I could do 4.5 stars because I do love the picture, but I do wish the music notes were faded more so there would be more contrast between the photo itself and the music bars. It makes it seem like the focal point is the music rather than the photo, and it would antique it more and give it more of a old book feel. But overall the picture is charming and I'm sure my sister will love it! :)

About

A M B E R C U R I O

So many old books these days are going to waste in thrift shops, Goodwill Industry stores and in dusty attics.

Each print for sale in this shop is made from a rescued and renewed antique book found in just one of those places. These books are most often found in a state mild to severe dis-repair with only the interior pages left perfectly intact.

With the creation of these original art prints antique treasures get a chance to be admired yet again for years to come!

Please see our Policies Page for more information and also feel free to email me for more information. Follow us on Twitter and Find us on Facebook.

    I have always been fascinated with old books, antiques and reusing things that have been discarded and forgotten. My work is a perfect mix of all those things and I find it rewarding every single day to do what I love.

Care instructions

Each print comes to you unframed and inside a sturdy 100% recyclable cardboard Stay Flat Mailer. The prints are double protected inside with an acid-free res-sealable plastic sleeve and extra cardboard insert to keep them dry, safe and unbent.

Please handle any print purchase very carefully. Each print uses recycled Archival Inks which last at least 100 years with the same bright vivid colors. The colors are sometimes a little different on the pages due to the aging of the paper. This means so pages may have more of a golden color than others. Prints come in Approximately the size listed. The size may vary in very few millimeters due to the original printing of the book being off centered.

Gift wrapping and packaging

For our prints we offer a free gift message where you can include up to 200 characters to the recipient. This is free of charge and available for every print purchased in our shop. Just request the note and what you would like it to say in the notes to the seller.
