A Day Off with Old Books

I spent most of the afternoon at Terrace Horticultural Books' anniversary open house, which continues Monday through Friday (12:00 to 5:00) this week as well as next Saturday (9:00 to 5:00). Yes, I bought a couple of things, but I also took a few photos of beautiful lettering and illustration.

I like the way a lot of current book designs look, but on the whole, I think we've lost many of the most beautiful parts of book cover and spine design.

Sweet potato culture... if only there were books about that topic if it meant what it sounds like to the nonhorticultural ear.
