Vintage French Handwritten Papers

This is a lot of handwritten letters and accounts of a church in France, dated between 1897 and 1910. They are interesting in that they are not the picture perfect calligraphy often found in documents of this era, rather they are quickly dashed off and have many corrections, crossings out, etc. According to my French-speaking husband they deal with local church matters including baptisms, confirmations, and letters to parishioners, instruction to nuns, etc. There is something human and immediate about them. Note, the paper is ordinary notebook paper and does not contain rag or linen, and while they are not fragile, I don’t think they would stand up to folding. Great for collage, book arts, assemblage, encaustic, etc. There are four lots and each lot contains at least 50 pages, many with writing front and back. Pages are approximately 5.5″ x 8″ (15 cm x 21 cm).

Each lot is £15 GBP plus £3 shipping (this includes international). You can use the PayPal feature on this site, or send me an email at: kellyboler79@gmail.com and I will send an invoice directly [read more]
