I don’t know about you but I love old books! The older the better. They just don’t make them anymore with linen or leather backing and vellum pages. I think they even smell better! I will go to garage and yard sales and books stores and antique stores looking for the oldest books I could find, within reasonable amount of wear and tear. I have seen rare books in museums that have to be carefully touched by gloved hands only.
The picture above is not real, just a photo program I like to play with.
But woudn’t it be nice if it were?
