|The SFPL Library Big Book sale is one of my favorite events of the year....|
|And, it is set in an incredibly beautiful location right on the water...|
|Vintage Rubber Stamp Catalog? $1? I think I will....|
|I loved this cover and considered it for a Paris altered book for my upcoming trip but it was so beat up I passed it up...|
what was I thinking?
|I scan the tables for the most tattered, old looking books....my favorites.|
|How could I resist this?|
|It was filled with cool old illustrations....I feel a collage coming upon me.|
|I cannot resist old, foreign language dictionaries. Especially ones in Farsi or Russia or an Asian language with a different alphabet.|
I did get about six or seven vintage French dictionaries and language-learning books...
|Can somebody tell me what language this is? Copyright1884!!! It amazes me I can get paper from 1884 for only $1.|
|Big book with gold edges and filled with old illustrations of London...|
|So, I have an endless supply of old paper to make things with. I have made a bunch of collage cards with the bits and pieces already....|
|And, I wrapped some tiny presents in book pages for a mail art pal in NYC.|
|I definitely find treasures just flipping through old books -- like this! That Postage Due stamp is the icing on the cake.|
|After dragging 25 books to my car, I had 30 minutes left for parking so I did a last look through and found these!|
It was meant to be.
