Tired but happy after a lovely bookshop day today. I’ve decided I don’t post enough pictures of books on IG, so here are some books. Specifically a few crime novels..... #booksandinkbookshop #booksandink #banbury #bookshop #indiebookstore #bestofbanbury #bookish #booklovers

I’ve fallen quite a lot in love with this picture book which is published tomorrow. Brilliant fun, rhyming, swashbuckling story! “Tired of the same old princess-meets-her-prince stories?... So is Princess Swashbuckle”!

Cool kids get tattoos at libraries #denverpubliclibrary #certifiedcustoms #booksandink

The very rare glimpse of what’s under my shirt... so #TheLittlePrince tattoo is the one I got at #DenverPublicLibrary ‘s #booksandink #tattoo in the library event. It took a storm and seven hours of waiting, but it was worth it for such a cool fundraising event. :)

Over forty minutes early and already a decent line! #tattoo #library #booksandink

Art gilt edges on this 1890 edition of Tennyson’s poems capture the light beautifully. Art gilt is a high lustre decorative finish to the pages using red dye and gilt and the result is this wonderful finish which changes colour in the light. . . .

‪I have completely and utterly head-over-heels fallen in love with these two beautiful books today. #picturebooks are #notjustforkids although I think children will love them too!!

3 shelves of good quality Russian books seek good loving home....
. . . 📖
Approx. 80 books - a lot are hardbacks and the majority are in very good (nearly new) condition. . . . 📖
Please don’t ask me what they are... Russian isn’t my forte! I would say the majority is literature but that is just a guess.
. . . 📖
I’m looking for offers please ££. Preference will be given to anyone offering to collect from us in Banbury. I can also send them within the uk mainland (at cost) - estimate 4 boxes, courier delivery c. £8 a box. . . . 📖
I’d really like these to go to someone who will use and appreciate them (no resellers please). . . . 📖
Any money raised from the sale of these books is going direct to “Alan’s Africa”. If you’ve missed our recent posts, we’re helping Alan raise the money needed to buy some books for Liverpool Community School in Waterloo, Freetown - Sierra Leone. Contact me or see earlier fb or IG posts if you’d like more info.
. . . 📖
No reasonable offer refused but if I have several offers I reserve the right to choose which one to accept! Please share with anyone you think may be interested, thank you!!

This has jumped the queue in my #tbr stack. I’m halfway through reading Sebastian Faulks’s ‘The Human Traces’ - it’s really good but it’s a long book and I’m itching to read this. This came out yesterday & it’s the latest in The Uncommoners series by Jennifer Bell - a really well-imagined children’s series where some common everyday objects can have quite uncommon magical powers in the underground world of the Uncommoners; think hoovers becoming magical flying vehicles. It’s a really good series. . . .
This dilemma made me think of @mistyangelofsky ‘s recent post about finding bookmarks in abandoned reads and wondering why you didn’t finish them. I fully intend to go back to The Human Traces... unless something else irresistible comes along! . . .

I’ve found an uncommonly fine first edition (1968) copy of Brian Wildsmith’s Fishes. Oh my goodness, it’s beautiful.

There’s only one printer this could have come from, with these gorgeous patterned paper boards. ...Yep, Curwen Press. Isn’t it gorgeous? Published by Daniel O’Connor around 1921, printed on lovely creamy paper and with lovely illustrations by Claude Lovat Fraser inside as well. It’s one of those lovely books I’d love to keep... but it is for sale.

Another pretty cover has landed on my desk today. A 1949 reprint of this E H Young book, published by Jonathan Cape in their Collected Works of E H Young edition.

It’s been a long week so far... I just thought I’d take a little breather and share this pretty patterned paperback cover. Published in 1959 by Edward Hulton. Does anyone know who designed the covers for the Pocket Poets series? I’d love to know.
