Today, I kept seeking out images and things from the past. A picture from 1909 a block from where my studio sits today from the wonderful Free Library of Philadelphia archives...
... Those red bordered labels that I use as if they were made of gold.
from animal head vintage
And the map I scanned today, from the geography text book that belonged to one of my ancestors a long time ago.
The most pleasant surprise was to discover that a company, named Esselte, still makes beautiful, sewn, acid-free ledgers so that, as they say on their site, you can "Be certain that important records stay in tact for a long, long...time!"
That makes me happy, deep down in the cockles of my bookbinding heart.
P.S. I also wanted to say thank you to Ellie of the Mint Design Blog for her lovely feature about Huldra Press, and say hello to some new readers too. Hope you enjoy.
