At Bottom's Up last week, I bought some books from Gwen.
A few, from the 1760's, were simply too wonderful to be art supplies. I tied a silk ribbon and flowers to these to set out in my living room.
Books were $5 each and notebooks were only $1!!!!!
Which is why I was sooooo happy!
The composition books were full of old, handwritten notes. This one had some cards tucked into the pages. I was thinking this booklet was probably a medical student's journal.
I sure don't read French, but once I got a good look at it, a few words stood out.
Not the prettiest phrase for creating with.
And it is on every page.
Oh well, this was the only book about venereal disease. And it still has some interesting and useful bits.
Many included maps, drawings, and nice handwriting. I'll be serving these up for the journals we are making at Birdsong 5.
There are a couple seats left there, if you want to come and make books with old French pages too.
