Welcome to Unseen Curios. I make a variety of handmade items primarily related to upcycled books-- from art prints on vintage paper to book safes.

Any print you see available in our shop can be printed on either vintage dictionary page paper or on vintage sheet music paper. If you don't see on the one you'd like we'd be more than happy to print it on the other for you upon request.

The books that I carve into book safes are rescued books that would otherwise be discarded or thrown away. I try to get the best possible books in the best condition, but they are all used and will show varying signs of wear and tear. That's generally all for the best as it should blend in with the other books on your shelf.

Please feel free to send me a question about anything you see here in our shop.

You can find our other shops at Owl and Hourglass, Maria's Needle Art, Photografia Lumica, Carpe Memoria, Supply Bazaar & The Open Sesame.

This shop accepts Etsy Gift Cards.
