Item details

Here are 36 vintage original color book illustrations that were salvaged from a children's book that was dated 1986. Some are magical or have a fantasy feel to them. The book was called "The Book of Goodnight Stories", by Vratislav Stovicek. The illustrations were done by Karel Franta, who was a Czech painter and illustrator.

Most are about 4 1/4" on one side. The longest is about 10" long. The rest are smaller. You will receive the pictures that are shown in the photos. Some of the paper has darkened a bit. There are pictures and text on the backs. There is no writing on any of them. No odor.

These are great to use in a scrapbooking project, junk journal, mixed media, making cards and tags, collage, etc.

This has the shipping price calculated to your location. It will be shipped by First Class mail with tracking. If you would like to upgrade to Priority Mail, with insurance, please choose the upgrade option at checkout. Thanks!

I try to ship your item to you the cheapest way possible, with no damage to your item. With 20 years experience of mailing items to customers, I do pride myself in the fact that items do arrive safely to my customers.

I do combine items for shipping to save you on the shipping charge when the items are on one invoice. If you pay separately for your items, the items will be sent separately, with no savings on the shipping charges.

For US customers ~ Postcards and other small paper items will arrive in a plastic sleeve and secured in an unused greeting card. They are mailed as a letter to keep the cost down for you. I have found that this method of shipping is the best, with the least chance of damage to your paper item. If you would rather have it sent as a package, with cardboard backing and a tracking number ~ just select the shipping upgrade at checkout. I do combine items for shipping.

Postcards and other small paper items have a flat rate charge for the first item and a nominal charge for each additional item automatically calculated in your shopping cart. For US customers, each additional postcard is 5 cents extra.

For International customers ~ As of January 2018, all international orders must be sent as a package with tracking, even postcards and stamps and other small paper items. The 14.00 shipping charge will cover an 8 ounce package, so you can have many postcards or stamps in your order for that amount. There is a fee of 5 cents for each additional item in an order.

Larger paper items, such as billheads or documents are usually shipped with cardboard backing, as a package, with tracking.



I ship packages out with USPS. If it is under 15.99 ounces, it will go by first class mail. Heavier boxes usually go the least expensive way, either Parcel Select or by Priority mail. If you need it by Priority mail, please let me know. Most items go by Priority anyway, as it is only a few cents more and sometimes cheaper.

If the retail price for your package is less than you paid, I will issue you a refund for the difference if it is over 1.00. You will only pay the retail price of that particular weight. I don't charge any extra handling fees. You can also let me know in advance of your wish to purchase something from my store. I will reserve it for you and adjust the shipping cost, so there won't be a need for a refund on the shipping charge. Either way works for me.

I ship items out Monday through Friday, and sometimes Saturday. Your item will go out the same or next day after receipt of your payment.

If you have any questions, please ask ~ I am always here to help. Thanks so much! ~ Nancy

RESERVES ~ I am happy to reserve items for you if you are waiting for me to list a few different items for inspection ~ such as postcards. Just request the item to be reserved and I will do so. Sometimes I get two people requesting the same item at the same time, so I will do the requests in the order that I receive them. I only have my home computers to access Etsy, so the reserve may not be processed when requested. That is why I will do the reserve in the order that the request is received.

Please understand that someone else can buy the item before it gets reserved for you and it will be sold to them. If someone buys a reserved item by mistake, I will not sell it to them. If it is reserved for you, then you get it.

I can reserve items for up to seven days from the first reserve in your order. You can complete the checkout process at any time within the seven days, as the shipping charge is automatically calculated.

If you have any questions about this, please ask. I am happy to work with you to the best of my ability.

Thanks so much~
