Jeanne...the detail in this little piece is amazing. I want to just pluck that book off the table and see what it says!

Thank you so much, Susan! I truly appreciate your lovely comments! Antique books are so beautiful with their delicate toolwork and gilding. In my mind, the patina of age only enhances that beauty. Of course they're exquisite visually inside as well, not to mention the eloquent and poetic verbiage. Thank you so much, Jeanne
