Not feeling very talky-talk lately, but here's a photofest of some recent acquisitions.
Big but ruined Collected works of Paul Bunyan, with gorgeous cover (so gorgeous I'm thinking of adapting the curled ivy for a tattoo)
(old scraps of paper were often pasted inside to strengthen the binding)
Big but ruined 1890s edition of Little Dorrit (you know I freaked)
I could get that font as a tattoo as well...
ragged from love
love book binders labels- I love Ballarat too, wonderful historic city
utterly ruined (can we see a pattern?) photo album...
(exquisite end papers)
(teaching certificate tucked inside photo album)
There you go.
