One of the things I love about living in a big city in Europe is the unexpected things that you stumble upon. As we were walking around the Gotic section of Barcelona, we happened upon a book fair and saw some wonderfully old books–like the kind you would want to have in a library at home, to make your library look like an old library, and to make you look really smart for having read so many old books.
If I were to have an old, well-established library, here are some of the books, or at least the look of some of the books that I would like to have.
If I had some of these books, then I would be smart. Wait…that sounds like something from a movie I once saw…it had something to do with The Great and Wonderful OZ.
