Found Friday

My 'vintage books for how they look' obsession continues - sometimes I like the content too - like the graphic scientific depictions of Australian Insects or the swing after swing rhythm of golfers (reminds me of my Dad - although he doesn't need instruction) or the quote inside the History of The World "What is all knowledge but recorded experience and a product of history" (Thomas Carlyle). That is kind of how I feel about the old objects I collect - they have history recorded on them and other peoples experiences too. The child mannequin hand, although sadly missing 1 finger, and the foot I found at reverse garbage, a favourite recycle centre - that was all there was - I'm sure there is a history in that too.
