Study Of A Book (Day 94 / Y 2)

Once I’ve been working for second-hand shop. They were selling clothes, but were receiving things from collections, and when people give out things, they give out everything, not only clothes. So while sorting, many - sometimes very random - things could be found. Toys, broken phones, money, latex panties, dildos and of course books. They didn’t sell them, so I was given some English books. One of them fascinates me, not because of content, but look. It’s high quality binding and printing, surely wasn’t cheapest book, but it looks as if it was some test copy, or made from leftovers. Width of pages varies from 11.5 cm to 13.5 cm and height from 19 cm to 20.5 cm, often they are crooked or uncut, but at the same time top edges are coloured in gold and are straight. Unfortunately I never had opportunity to see other physical copy of that book, to compare them, so I don’t know if this copy is unique or not. HERE I posted a video with a view of that book.

In a good bookroom you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them.
