  1. I'm new to reading you blog and I think it's wonderful, and I'm a sucker for end papers too. There are so many beauties out there.

  4. So pretty...I used to catalogue rare books and artists books and this is reminding me of my old job (pre-children, sewing and blogging). I miss handling all those treasures!

  6. Jill: catalouge rare books and artists books sounds very, very interesting, maybe once I´ll ask you some questions about it, if you don´t mind.

  8. Hi Andrea,
    Anytime you want to know about my old job, I'm happy to tell you...I was the assistant to the Rare Books Librarian at Wellesley College for 7 years, so I had many duties involving rare old books and wonderful new artists books. I'd like to hear more about how you are involved in the book arts as well!
