I love books. Big books, little books, fat books, thin books, fiction or history. I love 'em all, but I especially love old books! I found a couple of beauties yesterday while thrifting.
I really liked the look of this old Animal Husbandry text book from 1922. When I opened it up and discovered that many of it's pages are loose, I decided I needed to have it!
Loose pages mean that I can use said pages for various projects, without the guilt associated with defacing a book. I'm saving the poor thing from the landfill, and appreciating all it has to offer!
This wonderful blue book is one of a partial set of encyclopedias I discovered. I only bought one, since I'm really pinching my pennies these days. I didn't feel bad about breaking up a set, since somebody else had already done that. My first thought was that this lovely tome would make an awesome "secret stash" book, with the center removed to create a hollow.
Once I started looking at the lovely illustrations inside, I'm rethinking that notion. Now I really wish the entire set had been there, and I'd had the money to purchase it! I can probably salvage the best of the artwork, and still create a hollow within it's pages..., time will tell!
