dog-eared and crumpled .......

wonderful old used and antiquarian books are to found
in the tiny dark green bouquinist stalls along le Seine.
I could spend many happy hours thumbing through
delicate crumpled dog-eared pages
pondering not only on the story contained in the book
but the story of the book itself

I wish I had these crumbled albums of postcards. My Dad went to England when I was a kid, he sent postcards back to us, as a teenager, I assembled them nicely,

Alas, I went abroad,
Alas mum and dad went abroad to another country.
They had tenants from hell.
Termites came and ruin everything.

I also like old yellowish pages, dog eared pages. These pictures are very beautiful.

Cool photos! I'm glad that are people willing to purchase very dog-eared, crumbling books and give them homes.

I hope to go back to Paris one day and have more time to spend doing things like this. Perhaps I should rent an apartment.
