Gone with the windNovember 30, 2013
As promised, no Christmas posts all the time, although I have to restrain my fingers from typing something Christmas related! Ben and I are thrifting the recycle stores and antique shops quite alot though, in search for Christmas prettiness from another decade. And whilst thrifting, you now and then find something else you really wanted for a long time; the Gone with the wind novel. It's a coincidence, really, cause a couple of days before finding this marvelous book I cried to Ben I really wanted that book and how long I already searched for the perfect version of it - ofcourse from the 1930s. And the search payed off; Ben found it and brought it home for me. I actually expected him to come home with Christmas ornaments but this made me just as happy. And it was from 1937, too! It's a tripartite so I have to find me the other two parts but I've already seen that they aren't to rare. The dust cover and sketches of the book are made by a Dutch painter, artist and graphic artist named Anton Pieck. His works are noted for their nostalgic or fairy-tale like character.
