I just started a new category on my website to sell a variety of vintage books.
There are lovely books filled with music, hymns, date books, religious, poetry, and story books in a variety of languages.
Some of these books have beautiful illustrations and are fun for the collector, while others could be used for a variety of altered art projects. These books can thus be re-purposed or up-cycled into art projects and save from being tossed into the landfill.
Many of the books are from the early 1900's and are as described by condition, date, publisher etc.
Because I visit auctions, and many other sources for my collection of goodies, I often have a surplus of books and I am now slowly adding these to the website for sale. As well my friends and family have learned over the years to never throw anything away unless I have seen it and this too makes my collection larger than I will need or use in my own art in my life time!
Almost all books are unique one of a kind, with exception to some hymn books that I have obtained in larger lots. The reason I tell you this is so that you know for the most part if there is something you like don't delay as it may sell very quickly. Prices are very low because I am not a collector for value but rather for fun and so I pass this on to you.
Thank-you for stopping by,
