old treasures...


I love collecting antique books just for there craftsmanship and beautiful details... things like floral banners, gorgeous type, and whimsical drop caps make all the difference. Isn't this page pretty?

What a beautiful page. Physical books themselves have a story, and this page looks like it has an epic one. The font, the color the whole thing. Love! Thanks for sharing it.

Lovely! And in French too, which somehow makes it seem more chic, non? :)
