Vintage Dictionary Art
Vintage Funk & Wagnalls Dictionary
I came across this old dictionary at a local thrift store for $2. I love collecting old books and have recently been seeking old dictionaries to display on a bookshelf.
This one caught my eye with its aged patina and the endearing index card that read
Our Grandmother's Dictionary ~ honestly it made me a little sad that someone would get rid of this. The original owner's name is still visible on the front cover ~ in cursive of course!
Throughout the pages are intricate pen and ink drawings, amounst the K's was a page dedicated to Different Types Of Knots.
Being that I'm in the middle of a nautical kick ~ I couldn't help but turn this into framed art for our bathroom. I went to a local office store ~ asked they inlarge the image to poster size (I knew this would slightly distort the image), then framed it! The cost to print was $25 ~ I had a 20% off coupon, which made it $20. The frame was another thrift find for $10.
Here's the all-in-one pic should you wish to Pin it!
