Item details

For sale are four beautifully distressed Japanese vintage books.

Two are fine arts and objects catalogues with nice ribbon/thread/tassel binding decoration. Great for artists and crafters, or photographers or decorators.

Measure 8.7 x 5.9 inches (22.2 x 15.2cm).

This listing is also for two Japanese books with lovely decorative covers, hand-stitching, and rice paper that has been folded. These books have calligraphy and some black and white illustrations.

Each book measures 9 x 6.5 inches (23 x 16.5cm); one book is thicker than the other (5mm).

Postage overpayments/overages will be refunded, apart from a $2 USD handling fee.

Zip or postal code

I will ship to any country, but please contact me if the shipping cost appears to be too high and I may be able to ship by sea mail which is cheaper, but of course takes longer.
I send by ordinary Airmail which only includes Tracking outside of Australia in certain circumstances (if I purchase a pre-paid special plastic bag for light items like clothing, or if the parcel weighs over 2 kilograms, for example). If you wish to pay more for Registered mail, Express or Tracking, that can be arranged. PLEASE CONVO ME.
If you purchase two or more items from my shop, discount postage can be arranged.


Payment must be made in full before I ship the item, unless you have requested a payment scheme. Payment can be made by PayPal or Direct Checkout.

Returns & exchanges

You should expect the item to arrive within the time period of 10 to 14 working or business days from Australia by ordinary airmail. There can be exceptions to this rule, and they are out of my control: a parcel once arrived in Canada within 3 days from sending, and another parcel, to the same person, took 5 weeks.

Please note that if you choose the sea mail option it will take longer; please be patient. This will be explained when you contact me.

I charge $2 for packing and handling; if the postage quoted is too high I will refund the difference minus this $2 fee. All refunds will be through Direct Checkout, if you paid by credit card, immediately.

You are entitled to a full refund ONLY if the item has been grossly misrepresented in my listing. I cannot be responsible if the item is misplaced or damaged (unless I have packed it badly) after posting. I will however respond if this happens, and treat each case differently. I believe in negotiation.

I will not refund postage costs as I am a small business, but may give you a refund for the item as mentioned above.

I urge you to purchase insurance to protect against loss or damage to the item; there are several options through Australia post or your overseas provider. Please contact me. However, I have only had one problem with a lost item in three years of trading, and even this item turned up after almost a year!
