Old Books for Collecting, Reading or Decorating

Antiquarian books ... a fancy term for "old books" ... are actually a very versatile item. 

Being ephemera, they have all the tactile and visual qualities of old paper, but they can be more. Certain titles and printings are collectible in their own right ... we have some of those. Others, when damaged or plentiful, can be the source of intriguing ephemera for artists ... collages, mixed-media, scrapbooking, altered art, etc. Interior decorators love these old tomes, especially larger leather bound copies and good-looking sets ... all of which look great on bookshelves, desks, side-boards and such. Of course, some of these make for a wonderful read ... classics, historical perspectives and just plain interesting stories from long ago.

Take a look at some of what we have in the shop ... and check out our online site for the volumes we have available there.
