I love books that are smaller than normal....journals included and if they are handmade as 4 of them are...well, that is even MORE special. The hunt is part of the fun...and with small I can have them on my window sill in my "room" and still have full view outside. The first place I go when I am in a thrift store is the book section to see if anything appeals to me. Collecting is fun and somewhere I read where just 3 can be a collection.
My daughter also collects books but her preference is
vintage/antique. She purchases them based on the
outside spine decorations and she chooses books which are pretty much all the same size. She showcases them in her home studio on a shelf above her lamp working area. I am more random and she is more exact. It is neat that we have the same ideas and yet totally different.
