Favorite Things Friday – Vintage Books For Displays
Welcome to Friday! I’m starting a new series of posts on my blog called Favorite Things Friday. Every Friday I will share with you just that, some of my favorite things. Hope you enjoy the first one.I’m so excited my vintage books have arrived! I found them on Etsy from a wonderful little
shop called SG Books and Maps. If you’re looking for really quality vintage books, I highly recommend them. I plan on using this set for my upcoming craft show season, but once that is over I will use them in my home decor and photo shoots for products. Let’s take a look at them.
I selected this set for the muted colors they have and it would go well for my shows and home decor. They are really in incredible condition considering how old they are. They range from 1900 to 1951. But they all have the yellowing tint on the pages that I was looking for and just enough wear on the covers and binding.
The subjects are varied as you can see, but to be honest I didn’t really care what they were about, just the look of them. Is that too superficial of me? Anyway, one of them is a selection of poems by Rudyard Kipling and the cover has almost a leather feel to it. That one I would actually read.
You can really see the age in the pages. Love it!
This was a nice surprise to find in the Rudyard Kipling book. It looks like it was a Christmas gift in 1918. Very cool to find something like that.
This is the oldest book from 1900. Really incredible condition.
I’m really looking forward to using these, I know it’s a weird obsession, but it makes me happy. 🙂
