fortheloveofoldbooks' Shop Announcement

For the love of old books, I wanted to find a way to share my finds with kindred spirits. To introduce others to these treasures and to share the beautiful art often found in these old and rare books. These illustration plates are just too lovely to keep all to myself, so I have decided to create prints, cards and creations, using these treasures most dating back to the turn of the century and earlier. Inside many of these cards I have added pockets to hold old maps, bits and bookmarks created with old book inspiration. Prints and cards are created on Fine Art Paper, using archival inks. Many of them are iced in gold leaf paint.

If you are looking for a certain type of Antique or Vintage book, please e-mail me. I have several customers who I find special treasures. I live in an area rich with rare and unusual book shops and it is my pleasure to poke about in these lovely places for a specific find.

I am an artist, and my artwork can be found on my other etsy shop.
