Literary Love

So much old book love! Was very stoked to find these classics at a charity stall at a small local market...



Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice

Bram Stoker's Dracula
Note the blood-red page edges and age spots.


J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit
The cover is an early illustration by the author.


And erm... This One
It's some sort of technical manual in German, but it looks SO old, and the text is ALL in Blackletter! Some awesome bits of typography and illustration inside.


And this, too...
It's an old photo album. No idea what I'm ever going to do with it, but that cover and the bound edges were too much to resist.
