My current read (tagged) and I think I‘ve come to realize that my love for vintage books is directly correlated to my love for people on spines. 😆😆 Anyone else?

And along those lines I‘d like to thank you all for allowing me to post about somewhat “niche” books on here. One of the things I love most about Litsy is seeing all the little idiosyncratic reading preferences of everyone out there. It makes for such a welcoming community. ❤️❤️

Leftcoastzen I love it ! I love your selections & I‘m sad that many modern books don‘t really decorate spines as much . I love the art of the book & the various reasons people collect what they do. 3mo
LeahBergen @Leftcoastzen Yes, exactly! I‘m very much in love with the whole “book as object” thing (there are courses on this that I long to take 😆😆). Seeing what people collect is such a joyful thing to me and your posts always make my day. 3mo
vivastory I second that the spine is a great design space when used in new ways 👍 Will post a few favorite spines this weekend 3mo

LeahBergen @vivastory Please do! I‘m surprised that it‘s fallen a bit by the wayside in recent years (for many publishing houses, anyway). I can‘t wait to see what you post! 3mo
TrishB These are lovely ♥️ 3mo
squirrelbrain Gorgeous! ❤️ 3mo
sarahbellum I‘m definitely one of those people who shies away from the shiny bestsellers/new releases and goes for the hidden/forgotten gems. I love your posts for that reason ☺️ 3mo
Cathythoughts Charming books you have 💫 3mo
Caroline2 These look super charming. 💕 3mo
CarolynM Beautiful😍 I might have a pretty spine or two to photograph😆 And I totally agree about how nice it is to feel that whatever I enjoy reading I can share here. 3mo
Megabooks Always love seeing your library, Leah! 💜 3mo
batsy Yes, these are great! I adored the vintage Little Women copy my sisters had precisely because of the spine, which I remember clearly 💕 3mo
erzascarletbookgasm These editions are gems! 💖 3mo
Chrissyreadit 😍😍😍 3mo
mrp27 Love seeing your vintage collections! 3mo
UwannaPublishme Keep posting please! Seeing your unique and vintage books always warms my heart. 😍 3mo
rubyslippersreads I‘ll have to look through my spines and take a photo. The “niche” aspect of Litsy is one of my favorite things too. 😊 3mo
Itchyfeetreader See here is the beauty of Litsy - I thought my ‘thing‘ was niche and here is where I found my folks! I think I just finished my Chudleigh Hold collection and the call of the Chalet‘s is real! (Or at least Jo books - I am a Jo) 3mo
Centique @Itchyfeetreader I know exactly what you mean! I thought I was the only one who liked vintage childrens books and nineteenth century poets and Greek mythology and everything ever written about the Romanovs or Sylvia Plath - and it turns out there are lots of Littens with those same book passions! 3mo
Centique You know I‘m a massive fan of your library and your photos! It‘s really given me “permission” to buy a few more vintage books myself so there you go being a good influence again 😍 Abebooks should probably pay you some commission 😂 3mo
LeahBergen @TrishB @squirrelbrain Thanks! 😘😘 3mo
LeahBergen @sarahbellum Thank you! 😘😘 3mo
LeahBergen @CarolynM I just KNEW you‘d come through with some beauties! 😘 3mo
LeahBergen @Megabooks Thank you! 😘😘 3mo
LeahBergen @batsy Isn‘t it funny how clearly you can remember certain book images from your childhood? My sister-in-law and I were just discussing illustrations from the old Ladybird books last night. 3mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads And you certainly came through with some lovely ones! 😍 3mo
LeahBergen @Itchyfeetreader Yes! And I need to track down the Chudleigh Hold series. 😍😍 3mo
LeahBergen @Centique 😆😆 Thank you! And I love your list of “book passions”. I can‘t wait to see the vintage books you buy next! 😘😘 3mo
rubyslippersreads @Itchyfeetreader Chudleigh Hold is new to me. Something new to search for. 😊 3mo
rubyslippersreads @Centique You had me at vintage children‘s books and the Romanovs. 😊 3mo
Centique @rubyslippersreads another kindred spirit! 😘 3mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads @Centique Oddly enough, two of my obsessions as well. 😆 3mo
Amiable I love this photo as well! 3mo
