look book

Have of late been fascinated by images of books. And since I adore every aspect of books, not merely the story from beginning to end, but the sentences themselves, and the lives of the authors who wrote them, the shelves that lovingly hold them and the hands that carry them, the books themselves, the old and the new, well loved, well worn, and the world within them....... from time to time I'll share these book images I've been discovering and adoring, and start a 'look book' section to give them some deserved spotlight.

A while back this image caught my eye on flickr, and come to find out it's not just a stack of books, but a stack of books in the beloved Shakespeare & co. bookshop in Paris. Thanks to austinevan on flickr.
