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.

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 : 5-10 days
United States : about 12-15 days
Worldwide: 15-17 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.
