Vanitasism has always been an effort to research, preserve and share information. Since we opened the online store, we put increased attention on offering publications. A lot of the items you find on our website come from a time before the internet, before blogs and social media. Therefore the information about the context surrounding them is at a high risk of getting lost over time. In most cases, books and magazines are the only way to access information on these past eras and movements. Enjoy our selection of rare publications and make sure to take care of them and preserve the information for future enthusiasts.
