Sitting on a shelf in a forgotten country house library, a well-constructed book printed on cotton-rag paper can last hundreds of years, but once its binding is torn off for a short-lived decrating fad, it’s worthless, and once the silly fad passes, the book is trash. I’m all for recycling but that’s one hell of a way to do it. What’s next? Cutting antique paintings out of their frames, rolling them up inside out, tying them with string and grouping them in weathered baskets to show off their stained canvas backing? This kind of destructive nonsense is Follow the Leader of the worst kind.

Fahrenheit 451 is already here.

Anon.. I guess I never thought of it that way. I am afraid at the rate we are going that printed books may become a thing of the past altogether. I love the feel of a book and the paper in hand when I read. Time will tell…

I love to mix it in and mix it up artistically!!
Great images!

in re-reading some of your postings, I realized that you gave credit to Room seventeen for the images, but they had borrowed them from us. This are Johan’s photos. No biggie, no harm done.
