I am in love with vintage books. I love them in a grouping, in a pile, standing up, laying down, in a vignette...you get the picture. I also love the book bundles that are showing up everywhere. It's interesting to see all the beautiful ways people come up with decorating and displaying them.
I am always on the lookout for vintage books when I thrift. I like to use the papers for crafting or to use them in a few vignettes around my home.
This gorgeous tattered and yellowed book is a French - Hungarian translation dictionary. To be honest, I purchased it for the color. It's a faded red/maroon...so it looks gorgeous with pink and cream accents. A few pages are missing and one of them is the page giving the year it was printed so I have no clue how old this treasure is. The pages are very yellow and thin like onion skin.
I wrapped it in sheer ribbon and added a tiny pink French postcard tag. The tag is tied with a paper rose and some yellowed and crinkled seam binding. I think it looks like a little package. I'd like to receive it!
Another thrift store find. I love the color of this one. A Field Guide to Birds has been tied with more vintage seam binding and little bird tag.
Again, I think this one looks like a decorated present/package.
