I spent 4 hours in one of the book shops I frequent regularly as I needed lots of titles for pieces.
Rarely do I manage to stumble on a "beauty" like this.
It must have been on the shelves for ages, poor book
Very inconspicuous, it was.
I am not sure why I picked it up but then I saw the back of it and got an inkling something nice may be inside
When I saw the date of publication, my heart started to race.
These books are a rare find here, otherwise if one finds them they are very costly.
And as I opened the inside
I saw this and knew it was a good one!
Yes, the print had leaked on to the page
What lay underneath was going to be a great engraving
Ahh the thrill of finding it was immense
What was more bizarre was seeing the piece of paper, the bookmark within the book, not visible from the front...
Then I turned to the page with the bookmark,
Thrill turned to into questioning.
Is someone trying to tell me something?
Ok so I know I have been travelling a bit lately...
Oh well, whatever it means will surely become apparent soon enough.
Did anyone else have some interesting finds over this long weekend???
I would love to hear about it.
Speaking of Italy (book published in Florence)
I am going to be teaching there in May next year, in Cortona, with Stacey's Company and Michael's teaching the week after.
The last time I was there is when I was with this mob and met Michael for the first time...
We booked it the week of the Arezzo Flea markets, the best ever, nearly the whole town brings out their wares.
Should be an amazing trip - yaah!
