This vintage book art features Cicero's great quote, "A room without books is like a body without a soul". The work of typographic art is printed on a lovely antique dictionary page. This wonderful quote is the perfect gift for your favorite book-lover. Printed onto the page using bookishly exclusive hand-drawn font, it can't fail to charm! Whether it adorns the library in the east wing or the reading nook by the fire, it will be a constant reminder of why the love books so much. The quotation is printed using bookishly exclusive hand drawn font. An original dictionary page is used each time, making each piece unique to you. The books are hunted down in charity shops and second hand book dealers. The frame is handmade in England by a local family business using ethically sourced wood. The black wooden block frame has no glass so you can feel the lovely old page. The frame hangs flush to the wall or can stand on its own, making it perfect for a bookshelf. The page is taken from an old medium school dictionary.

About the Manufacturer

Bookishly started in 2009 as wall envy art and rebranded in 2013. There’s a few things that make the Bookishly range different to other typographic collections. The wonky old font is exclusive to me, and based on my hand drawn lettering. You won’t see it anywhere else! The framed prints are mounted into my signature block frames, supplied by my family’s business here in Northampton. There’s no glass so you can feel the lovely old page and they can easily be sent all over the world. They often are! Each book page print and pendant uses an original vintage book page, making each one a little bit unique. Bookishly designs have been featured in number of national and international magazines and blogs, including The Huffington Post, Apartment Therapy, Ideal Home and Stylist among others.
