You know that old saying, "Don't judge a book by it's cover"? Well this was the case with a book I spotted at an estate sale. I saw a few people pick up this book and, either put it down, or just push it to the side. They never bothered to look inside.
Yes, it was tattered, torn, and a bit water damaged. However, I still found it charming.
It's when I looked inside that I saw just how charming it was. Yes, this is how I find a lot of the images I use in my redesigns. This book is dated 1896.
There was page after page of beautiful images, and poetry.
I picked up some other books, and prints as well.
Some of these images will find their way into a few projects.
Next time you see a book that's a bit forlorn, look inside.
