"Antique & vintage books with beautiful bindings add distinctive character & charm to decor vignettes" Carolyn Williams #decorating_with_#books
Book cover Alice in Wonderland. There are various covers for this story; this one has a delicate illustration with gold, red and white roses. Quite antique looking.
JUST reread this amazing book. Meaning I finished it about 3 hours ago.... One of the most heart-wrenching and thought-provoking stories.

Nothing like the look, touch, and smell of antique books. As much as I love my Kindle, it will never replace this.
