Great as gifts and easy on the eyes, these vintage dictionary prints by Portland-based Jean Cody are perfect for wordsmiths and lovers of everything pretty.

Cody’s passion is exploring ways in which artwork interweaves with vintage book pages. She runs the Etsy shop Faux Kiss, but makes art in her studio near Portland and sources vintage botanical, animal or other delicate prints, enhances them digitally, and prints the images onto old dictionary pages. The layering of patterns and prints and the juxtaposition of color against the stark black and white book pages are refreshing and captivating as your eyes try to adjust to the mismatch of images. 

Tack them on the wall or throw them in a frame, these prints are sure to make your house a home in minutes.
