Thrift store score



I found this book today on my lunch break. Since I love tiny things and I love books, there was no way I was leaving the store without this one! It's about four or five inches tall and what I'm loving the most is the label on the front. I think this book must have been on quite the journey at some point. Love the title, too.

***Edit- I found out more about this label here.

  1. I'm a big fan of Ruskin as well, since he was a supporter and critic of the Pre-Raphaelites.

  6. Awesome! This is what I love about old books, they always have a story behind them (and in them.. haha) and I love when we get to see part of their history!
