Recently a few of my friends have given me books, some old and some new. I thought it would be nice to share a few images of the older ones I've acquired. Sure, they contain interesting pages to pour over, Darwin’s ‘The Expressions of the Emotions in Man and Animals’ will certainly shed some light on the more perplexing expressions my dog has whilst darting curious glances at me, but for now I will appreciate them as objects, in all their uniqueness and charm. What I like most about these old books is the sense of history that can be felt in them; they’re dense with the past.
Thank you Shing, Lee, Austin and Elsa for these lovely things.
