This is a stunning set of five vintage French books in faded creamy beige tones. They are "aged to perfection" and will give you an instant "old library" effect. There are works here by some of France's most famous writers, such as Victor Hugo and Alphonse Daudet to give your bookshelves added French chic!
The perfect original gift for booklovers the world over. They look lovely tied up with twine and displayed on a coffee table, sideboard, mantelpiece, bedside table or dresser. The covers have faded with time to subtle, dusky, soft shades and the pages are yellowed with age, with age spots. They make excellent film and photo props and would be ideal for a boho, or shabby chic, themed wedding as a table centerpiece decoration.
The five books are all distressed from years of genuine use, and some of the pages are delicate and loose:
