I don’t know if you already know this but there are some fundamental truths about books 📕🍊📒💚📘.
Firstly, there is no such thing as too many books, just not enough shelves (which, incidentally, I’m fast running out of). Secondly, colour-lovers, you are not only able to judge a book by its cover but sometimes you really MUST (an actual book, that is. When it comes to human beings, the saying still very much applies). If the book is pretty and makes your heart sing, buy it, even if you’re never going to read it. Many of my books give me WAAAY more pleasure to look at than I would ever get from reading them, and by my reckoning that’s fine. In line with both of these truths, here is a collection of striking and deliciously-coloured books that have caught my eye recently. I wanted to rehome them all but sadly space would not permit me to (anyone know a good carpenter?…) so I’ve snapped them instead. The pictures give me joy enough. I hope they do the same for you, folks. PS if you love books matched by colour as much as I do, take a look at @decadesofvintages whose feed I discovered last night. You won’t be disappointed…
