Dana, thank you so much for perfectly portraying what we had in our heads into reality. We've already framed one of the beautiful quotes you made for us and will be going to grab the rest of the frames as soon as possible. We can not wait to have all these gorgeous works of art on display at our wedding. Thank you so so much for your patience, ideas and your gift. Postage was quick from Romania to Australia. We will definitely recommend you to others. Thank you again, Sarah and Dan Xoxo

An encounter with beauty beyond age

I have always loved books - when I was a child I was very ill and books proved to be faithful friends who helped me through and overcome the bad days. Books still are and will always be my best friends. I have thousands of them in my home and one sorrow – my life will not be long enough to read them all.

My mother taught me that the best way to get 'healthy, wealthy and wise' is not to waste what you have. From her, I learned how to give a new life to old things, how to make a gorgeous blouse using an old embroidered tablecloth, to knit a lovely purse from an old sweater.
To turn an old book, damaged beyond repair, into a lovely work of art by printing its pages with charming, ancient or Art Nouveau images means, for me, a Cinderella story come true.
The old pages are so fragile, so the process is a bit trickier than one might think; it involves 5 different physical operations, from cutting out the page from the book until printing it. I use a laser printer, which provides a gorgeous print, with rich and durable colors.

I work alone, from scanning old books and postal cards, digitally enhancing the illustrations, conceiving the final images, printing them and preparing the items to be shipped.
My husband helps me to cut out the pages from the books and to 'hunt' the most interesting images from his impressive postal cards collection, gathered in almost 50 years.
We love to spend hours in the antique boutiques in our town and discover wonderful ancient books. I am also a regular visitor of my town library where I constantly discover old books with amazing illustrations.
My daughter helped me to open the shop and taught me everything I know regarding the online publicity.

I invite you to visit my shop, ; I hope it will be a pleasant encounter with beauty beyond age.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
You can pay using Paypal - You do not need a Paypal account to actually use Paypal - You can create a Paypal account if you want to and you do not already have one, or you can simply use Paypal to pay with a credit card, debit card, or even a personal check without creating a Paypal account.

Sometimes creating a Paypal account for the first time will delay the payment for few days while they verify your information.

Payments using Paypal with a personal check are held by Paypal until they clear - Etsy sellers have no control over this and there is a delay before I receive that payment and therefore it will take more time until your purchase is shipped.

If payment is not received within seven days, your order may be cancelled. Please contact me if you have any concerns.
Your print will be packaged in a clear plastic sleeve, with a cardboard insert to protect the print during the shipment.

Orders will be shipped to the address that you supplied through ETSY, so please make sure that this address is correct before placing an order.

Please allow up to two business days (Monday through Friday not including holidays) for your order to be shipped once the payment has cleared.
Custom orders may take longer.

We ship worldwide by Romanian Air Mail First Class, a great service, but no Tracking Number is provided. I strongly recommend you to upgrade your shipping and buy a Registered Shipping with Tracking Number: in my experience, the items sent with Registered AirMail arrive 2-4 days faster than Regular AirMail and none of the packages sent with Registered Airmail was lost.

Delivery time usually takes about:
Europe : 4-8 days
United States : about 10-14 days
Worldwide: 15 days

Before/After Christmas usually the shipment have delays (Nov to Jan).

If you need it faster just let me know and we'll talk about faster methods (Skypack, DHL, etc).

Please take note that the buyer is responsible for any duties and/or customs fees or taxes that may be incurred by their destination country. On my knowledge, the mail I will send you being considered a letter, you will have not to pay any other fees or taxes.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to convo me. I will be happy to answer to all your questions.
Refunds and Exchanges
You have the right to return the purchased item within 14 days after you received it, for any reason, but you have to ship the package back to me at your expenses. I will issue the refund within 14 days of receiving the returned item or evidence that the item has been shipped back.

Please return the item in its original condition - this is very important as you won't be entitled to a refund otherwise.

You may find the cancellation form model here:

- Lost or Damaged Packages –
If your items arrive damaged, or if your package was shipped out but never arrived, please contact me within 30 days of the payment day. I will work with you to come up with a solution on a case by case basis, but please be aware that I am not responsible for the packages lost by International Mail Services.
