Choose your favourite quotation from your favourite book, or a special message of your own, to be printed using the exclusive wall envy art hand drawn font onto an original page taken from the book of your choice. If the book you want is not currently in our library, just select the custom option and we will get it for you, and then have a frame made to the correct size. The frames are made with wood from sustainably managed forests. They stand up on their own or hang on the wall – perfect for shelves and mantelpieces.
The page can be framed in a chunky black block frame, there's no glass so they are very easy to send as gifts and you can feel the lovely old book page. Custom made frame to fit the book page - and 3cm deep.
Traditional Glass Frame:
Custom made traditional frame with cream cut mount. The mount is cut to fit a 20.4 x 25.4cm (8x10 inches), frame and the frame itself is 3cm wide. This is pictured in the final photograph above.

For Style 1 the text is all the same size and will be arranged in the bottom left or centrally depending on how the artist thinks it looks best. Up to around 25 words will fit. Style 2 will fit fewer words - around 15 maximum and the words will be different sizes but the same width, arranged in a column either to the left or centrally.
Remember that these pieces use vintage and second hand books. The layout will be decided by the artist, the text very much dictates how it should look. That's what makes them special! It is very unlikely, but if it happens that the book you request is not easily available, you will be informed and refunded very promptly. If you prefer to ask in advance please do! The books vary in size but are all smaller than A5. If you need to know the exact dimensions of your art in advance please ask.
