I have always been fascinated by old books; sometimes it’s the yellowed pages, the slightly musty smell and the embossed cover that catches my attention and other times its the sheer love of old books and the wonderful connection they have with the past that compels me to buy them. I usually don’t read them from cover to cover, though I will read a sentence here and there; I don’t want to risk any possible ripping of the brittle seams or cracking of the old bindings.
There are a few books in my rather small collection that I have a real soft spot for. The following 3 images are collages made up of pictures pertaining to 3 specific favourites of mine. I hope you enjoy them and feel free to ask for more information if you’re curious about any of them.
If you are a collector of old books too, I would LOVE to see some pictures of your old, treasured books and find out more about them!!
As always (((hugs))) :)
