Amazing bookmail day! That Lord of the Flies cover .... swoon. Disturbing, yet stunning. Since buying the Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition of Les Mis - I wholly blame @vivastory - I cant get enough of these striking editions.

vivastory I gladly accept responsibility! I have the same edition of The Lord of the Flies. Have you seen this one 14mo
britt_brooke @vivastory Ooh, I love that one, too! Adding it to my wish list. I have two other really pretty editions of it, but can‘t get enough. Every cover is badass. 14mo
vivastory I was thrilled to recently find a Deluxe edition of Great Expectations in half price books. It's out of print. 14mo

MAY 15 PROMPT: #DeckledEdges

My grandfather bought this book in France in 1931 while visiting Mont Saint Michel during his “grand tour” between college and law school. Each page has that wonderful heavy cotton feel of #CoolOldBooks and of course #decklededges The illustration above is from the Tree of Jesse Window at Chartres Cathedral. The sculpture pictured behind the book was sculpted by my grandmother in Italian marble, called “Baby Whale.”

Susanbones I had to reread the final sentence to make sure I read it right. That was sculpted by your grandma?? Beautiful!!! 2y
ReadZenRites Yes, thank you. She was incredibly talented, although she hadn‘t started her art education until all her children were grown. She was nearly 70 and still using hand-chisel on stone! 💕💕 2y

#OldCoolBooks #decklededges

My Happy Hollisters books have deckled edges. This one is a 1960s book club edition so the edges are a bit yellowed. I always loved this cover & that they went to Denmark as that's where my dad's father was from.

I added a pic of the inside cover page for @ReadZenRites as the splotches of color on black & white cry out for some coloring & after seeing her work on her childhood 101 Dalmatians, I know who to ask!😆👍

kspenmoll Memories!!‘ 2y
ReadZenRites Oh yes, that illustration has my fingers just itching to color them in!💕😊 2y
ReadZenRites I love that Danish connection. So sweet! The best Disney stories weren‘t Disney‘s at all, it seems! 😁 2y
Linsy Love this!!! 🙌💖 2y

The dust jacket is in two pieces 😢 but it has lovely #DeckledEdges @Linsy
I picked this up at a local annual book-sale last year.. it was too unique to pass up! It was published in Scotland in 1920. #OldCoolBooks are windows to bygone traditions and a far different way of life, long past.

ReadZenRites So lovely 😊💕 2y
Linsy What a wonderful edition! I can see why you treasure it! 💚💕 2y
