made in britain
A gift for book lovers featuring a humorous quote from William Shakespeare printed onto vintage page from the Complete Works of Shakespeare.
"with mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come"
A great birthday gift for those of a certain age!
The pages used are slightly smaller than A5 and measure approximately 15.5 x 21.5cm (approx 6 x 8.5 inches).
The lovely old yellow book pages are framed in ethically sourced wood and gift wrapped in a beautiful old road map. The quotation is printed using a hand drawn font made exclusively for Bookishly, and the original book pages make each one unique. Your page will be randomly picked from Shakespeare's Complete Works, so won't necessarily be from the same play as the quote.
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.
You can also choose to have your book page print(s) completely unframed. Please note the pages are delicate, small, and are not standard frame sizes so if you are going to frame them yourself you will most likely need to have a custom mount/mat made.
15.5 x 21.5cm (approx 6 x 8.5 inches)
There is approx 0.3cm of black frame showing around the page, and the frame is 3cm deep.
