Old books are special. They're different than these new books about vampires and the world ending. They're still pure, untouched by iphones or covered up by the new issue of People; just good hearted books about life and what it really does to us.

Old Books Love
"Never judge someone by the way they look, or a book by the way it is covered. For inside those tattered pages, there's a lot to be discovered." ... one of my favorite quotes from a children's story book I read when I was young.
I hope my grandchildren will remember what it feels and smells like to read books like this and not just on an electronic device.
Vintage books. Love them.

Many people, other than the authors, contribute to the making of a book, from the first person who had the bright idea of alphabetic writing through the inventor of movable type to the lumberjacks who felled the trees that were pulped for its printing. It is not customary to acknowledge the trees themselves, though their commitment is total. ~Forsyth and Rada, Machine Learning

Book binding ca. 1802
In the 1890s, members of the Grolier Club in New York, lamenting the dearth of fine binding in America, established the Club Bindery in an attempt to make available luxury bookbindings that could rival those of Europe. Several European-trained binders were brought to New York to begin work in 1895. In 1897, Grolier Club member Robert Hoe was instrumental in bringing Leon Maillard to the bindery from France.

Leighton, John, designer Style Publishers binding Owner Author Bell, Robert Title Golden Leaves from the Works of the Poets and Painters. Date of Publication 1863  London link (click for a closer look) John Leighton (1822-1912) was the most productive designer of bookbindings of the nineteenth century, his work spanning the years 1845-1902. His father and uncle were in business together as J. and J. Leighton, bookbinders, but John studied first as an artist, writing and illustrating a number of works under the pseudonym Luke Limner. The Great Exhibition of 1851 provided the opportunity for a wider range of work, and during the 1850s and 1860s he produced an astonishing number of binding designs while continuing to publish as an author and illustrator. In his later years he became interested in local government, and his last recorded work is a pamphlet of 1902, proposing improvements to the London underground system.(http://www.bl.uk/collections/early/victorian/pr_leigh.html)

Deep blue goatskin, richly gilt to a floral mandorla pattern, with gilt and goffered edges, and with endleaves of Morris silk brocade; signed and dated 1891.
