Who needs words ?

From xkcd

Phil: You might laugh (please do, I think it’s funny but then that’s why I posted it) but hang on, am I the only person who owns some books that I like purely as beautiful, tactile, objects ?

  1. Who needs to be able to draw?
    Have several books that I will never read but the covers and end papers are what I bought them for. I have also been tempted at buying old French books, especially those that have illustrations, at the vide greniers (emptying the attic) – car boot sales but without the cars or their boots and held in freezing cold sport halls in the winter and baking hot ones in the summer. We are planning our winter attendaces at the moment to flog off excess stuff. As an exhibitor you get free coffee, frites and a bit of some sort of cooked meat and a free piece of cake!

  2. Free cake ?

    Oy, Nolan – fancy a trip to France with a few bags of “Genuine British collectables” ?
