I love old books

I've long had a love for antique books. I love the way they look, the way they feel, the way they smell. They are like stepping back into time, each a work of art. I have collected them for years and I'm pretty selective of the ones that I purchase.
I find them at yard sales and usually pick them up for a dollar or so.
Here's one that I found recently, it is modeling on an old trunk that I've owned since I was a teenager.


 Beautiful, isn't it?

  1. Yes, it is!! I also love old books! Cookbooks especially. The old recipes often make me laugh and wonder how they even lived. Example: Canning by leaving jars of food out in sun all day.

    Please share more of your collection!
