My favorite Christmas gifts this year were three art pieces printed on vintage dictionaries and books. What an incredible idea! I imagine displaying these pieces as a perfect grid in a library, office or nursery. Simple for anyone to do at home, but if you are not in the mood to design your own they are very affordable. Most of the items I found on Etsy.com were around $5.00 – $12.00.
My favorite of the three is this Audrey Hepburn print from Ephemera And More. They currently have a “Buy 3 Get 4” sale and at an average cost of $10 a print that is a steal.
Another print I need to find a frame for is one designed after the Robert Indiana’s Love sculpture. You can find this at the etsy shop Encore Prints which is also having a Buy 3 Get 1 Free special.
The last Christmas gift was this “Keep Calm and Carry On” print. This print came with a matte and frame from the Canton Box Company.
I found a ton of shops on Etsy who specialized or sold these items. If you have the time and equipment (any standard printer will do) you can easily recreate these for yourself. Find an old book or dictionary, pull out a page and run it through your printer. Print a silouette or any image on top, frame and matte the image and sit back and admire your own custom vintage art!
