Picture the Beauty 5

Day 5 - The wonder of old books

The beautiful objects of the day are old, precious books whose contents contain wonders and whose feel and smell is so amazingly evocative. 

Here's how Emily Dickinson sums up books:                           

There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry -
This Traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of Toll -
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears the Human Soul.
