Vintage book trade labels  "Anyone who handles old books will have come across these small and sometimes beautiful labels pasted more or less discreetly into the endpapers.

And even from 2010 (Kool-Aid's version, of which grape was the best flavor). Someday someone will get it right. Back to the drawing board ...

I like this photo for a couple of reasons. 1) I've got a fondness of marquee signage. 2) The font is vintage and nostalgic 3) It's a light up sign.
