Friday Finds [3]: Penguin Vintage

DSC_0765

I had a dentist appointment last week. They had to refill a filling that wasn’t done properly. The procedure took hourssss. I swear, at the end of it all, I couldn’t close my mouth.

I have a point.

The dentist’s office is right beside an antique store, which also sells used books. How convenient, right? I had a few minutes to kill before I had to go pick up the kids from school, so I decided to spend it unwisely. It was not the first time that I’ve been there. In fact, I go there when I’m in the mood to browse for some vintage books. It was also one of the two stores where I find these Penguin gems, which, I simply adore.

I am a huge fan of these books for artistic (and aesthetic) purposes. And honestly, most of them are so worn that flicking through their pages may just cause their untimely demise. I’m probably not going to be reading them anytime soon, but I love how they look on my shelf.

At first, I only wanted to collect the orange ones, but this was also the first time that I’ve seen the green ones on their shelves.

If you don’t know it by now, I am as much of a collector as I am a lover of books. So don’t be surprised when I do posts like this one. [ See it here and here].
