Jordan turned 18 on Friday, we haven't seen very much of him since!
In celebration of my giving birth day we headed over to the Arts Festival in nearby Litchfield Park and found a vintage and antique book sale going on in a very old school building. What a treat! I wanted to buy it all, but I settled on these: (Top to Bottom) Four Shakespearean Comedies, The Little Prince, Guy de Maupassant's Selected Short Stories, Gertrude Stein's 3 Lives, The Highly Sensitive Person, The Size of Thoughts , The Joy of Lex ( I almost passed it by mistaking it for that other joyful book!) The Book of Virtues, an old dictionary for altering, a book that didn't make the photo because it's already tangled up in my comforter (The Prodigal Tongue) and the piece de resistance...
This dusty little unsuspecting wonder is a 1953 copy of Albert Skira's biographical and critical studies of Pablo Picasso's work! I'm in heaven.
Peace and good times and books and stuff!
