'Mother' in different languages printed onto a vintage dictionary page using Bookishly's exclusive hand drawn font.
Whatever you call her, she's pretty special! Lots of different words for 'mother' have been printed onto a beautiful old dictionary page. Some are in other languages and some just other words we use in English.
The page is taken from an old medium school dictionary and measures approx 14cm x 20cm (approx 5.5 inches x 8 inches).
An original book page is used each time, making each piece unique to you. The frames are made using ethically sourced wood and are gift wrapped using a beautiful old road atlas.
The black wooden block frames are handmade in Northamptonshire using wood sourced from sustainably managed forests. They stand up by themselves or hang flush to the wall, and look great on a bookshelf. The frames are lightweight and contain no glass so you can feel the lovely old page. I hunt down the books in local charity shops and second hand book dealers.
14cm x 20cm (approx 5.5 inches x 8 inches)
There is approx 0.3cm of black frame showing around the page, and the frame is 3cm deep. The dimensions of this design can vary very slightly depending on the dictionary I am using at the time.
