A handful of books from my shelves

Here are three with lovely covers that I’ve picked up in op shops.


The lettering is poor on this one, but otherwise it is so sweet. I love the simple charcoal with colour overlay.


This is my copy of The Arabian Nights illustrated by Pauline Baynes of Narnia fame (along with much other beautiful work)


And this rather sumptuous 1965 copy of Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea.

      Yes, It is printed on an uncoated stock, so it looks matt, as though you are looking at the original watercolour. We’ve since covered the book to protect it so it looks shiny, but I’ll post another photo of the dust jacket (without the plastic cover) to show the treatment of the edges of the artwork. It shows the brushstrokes. Lovely!
