Item details

Add an unusual element to your collages, mixed-media art, or card making. You will receive 30 shapes hand-cut from 40- to 50-year-old vintage books about Yiddish and Hebrew literature. (Shapes were not cut from religious texts.) Most of the text is in Hebrew, and there may be a small amount of English interspersed with the Hebrew. Pages vary in the amount of age-related patina on them.

Your package will include

- 6 squares 1" (2.5 cm)
- 6 squares 2" (5 cm)
- 6 circles 1" (2.5 cm)
- 6 circles 1.5" (4 cm)
- 6 circles 2" (5 cm)

Please note: photos show more than 30 shapes.

Feel free to convo me if you have any questions or if you want your package to include more or less of any one size or shape.
