I quite enjoy old books. There is much that has not yet been reprinted, and there’s something about leather bindings that appeals. On a recent journey to T K Maxx here in Edinburgh I ran across what looked like an old book. Here it is mingled with some others in our living room.
Pretty nice for T K Maxx. Though, upon closer inspection you realise that this is no ordinary book, it is a safe book. Years ago I bought an old massive Bible Illustrations book for a fiver (with a lovely leather binding) with the intention of gutting it and making my own book safe. I still have the book and hope to get around to doing that, but in the mean time this surprising find will have to do.
