Words

[collage available on eBay]
I love found words.


Yesterday I went through my local library's discard pile, where books are sold off very cheap (and I'm very happy to rescue old, battered books, as well as contribute to the library). I go through all of them and pick out the ones most interesting to me, both for covers and text. As you can see in the photo.
