Vintage Find of the Day: Hardbound Books

We've loved vintage books for as long as we can remember. Admittedly, we haven't read every word in the majority of the old books on our shelves. However, we do tend to continually obsess over the old illustrations and vintage typography that adorn the covers and spines of each book. Being the history lovers we are, it should come as no surprise that old books are right up our alley. Every book is evocative of its own era and our vintage collection sparks the imagination with another time and place altogether. Sometimes we get so caught up with the cover of vintage book that we forget to look at what's inside. As beautiful as a cover of a book may be, discovering the mysteries that lie inside is like finding buried treasure. Lately, as we've been thumbing our way through our collection of vintage books we've been finding scraps of history that we didn't even know existed! What excites us even more than the historical clippings is seeing the personalized touch of the book's previous owner. Which, for us, is what makes vintage finds much more exciting than anything new.
