via Instagram @kimiberr. Complete Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde, 2nd-hand book inscription:

It also came with this.

“Irwin,

May you lead a fairy-tale life when you go to the land of fairy tales.

Most poets and writers are fascinated with these stories, and I hope that you’d like this. Bon voyage! Belated H-bday too. Some (N)”

This is why I love buying old books. It’s like I’m peering into some one else’s life and not just through the stories I read but through the little inscriptions, earmarks, notes, and dedications of past owners and givers like these. Makes the world smaller but a bit more vast all at the same time.

Shelf Porn: Bookshelves of Ralfy Acuña

From Mr. Ralfy Acuña:

“I collect all sorts of books, but mostly novels, poems, plays, art books, works about history and music, and primary sources for works about the social and natural sciences. Most of them are used or new books purchased at 50 to 80 pct off, but the most valuable for me is Jung’s Red Book.


I’m currently looking for the second volume of Letters of the Great Artists, the other two volumes of Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago, Dunn’s edition of The Perfumed Garden, the Modern Library edition of Fowles’ The Magus, the Twentieth-Century Classics edition of Abe’s The Woman in the Dunes, The Way of Hermes (trans. Salaman and others), Tales of Hoffmann (Heritage Press), Reporting Vietnam (two volumes, Library of America), the Clay Sanskrit Library, and The Rienner Anthology of African Literature.



Paul Lorenzo (http://www.lorenzophotogallery.com/) photographed the books and shelves, and Architect Wendell Florentin (0916-4922418) designed the shelves.”
