L'ILLUSTRATION 1891 FRENCH BOOK - VOL 2

Paige Hull

Found in the French town of Nimes, this beautifully aged "L'illustration" book dates all the way back to 1891. This bound piece of French antiquity was a weekly news periodical and is fulled with articles and advertisements. 

Brimming with history from the 19th century, this volume evokes an essence of the past that we can only relate to through amazing antiques like these. Just looking at the illustrations on these pages immediately awakens a sense of nostalgia. Think about who could've owned this book and who the articles were about. This book holds one small piece of their story from long ago. 

This volume is beautiful yet functional. Set it on your coffee table or use it as a lovely accent with your bookshelf decor. The neutral dark colors of the cover make it perfect for anyone's home or office. Not only is it a gorgeous piece, but guests can also flip through it and feel a deeper connection to the past.

There are so many pages of one-of-kind illustrations and articles that this book could even be used for art. Create original works using the pages in mixed media projects, or simply frame whole pages for a gallery wall. This book provides a great collection of pretty and naturally aged pages.
