Especially For You

18Mar12

I'm saving this for when the Antiques Roadshow comes to town . . .

As an occasional collector of books I’m always bemused that those inscribed with a message of one kind or another usually fail to maintain the price of those that appear more freshly laundered.

I’m even more bemused that people are, presumably, happy to give up these trophies of varied success and significance – I mean don’t the 3rd Saltford Brownie Pack know who John Craven is ?

[If you’re intrigued by inscriptions The Book Inscriptions Project collects “personal messages written in ink (or pen or marker or crayon or grape jelly) inside books” and is well worth a look .]
