Lovely Reading






I have a rather huge interest in pretty books. You know the kind that are pretty to leave out on display. They make for the most lovely vignettes. Oh, and yes it is most definitely a plus if they are ones that can also be enjoyed while being read. All of of these I find to be rather lovely. Little pieces of art really, that can one be passed down to my little ones.

The top to images are books that can be found at the French Market. Can you tell I am becoming quite obsessed with this shop?

I have to admit that I love each and every one of the newly redesigned Penguin Classics but The Hound of the Baskervilles is a particular favourite of mine.
