A beautiful old book :) :) {mt. pleasant, tx engagement and portrait photographer}

January 19, 2012

ย 
I’ve bloggged in the past about my love for hardcover books (if you’ve never read that post, please go read it because it’s one of my favorites ๐Ÿ˜€ ). Well, this post is about one hardcover book that was recently given to me :D.
ย 
Monday morning our friends the Longs (who spent the weekend with us) headed back home. But before they left, they gave us some unexpected parting gifts: Mom a cute apron, Dad a few books, and me a necklace from Savannah and then, from Bro. Steve, this beautiful old copy of William Cowper‘s poems!!!ย 
ย 
The only poems I’ve read of his are ones that we sing in our hymn book :). So, I’m really looking forward to reading the rest :D.
And it’s also beautifully illustrated!! I loooove this kind of old artwork :D.
I also love the old typeface :). It’s just awesome :).
And of course the cover is a work of art.
Hooray for beautiful things and for the people that were gifted by God with the creativity to make them so we might appreciate and enjoy them :D.

 

With a smile,
