How have you been doing? I am back from Italy, currently staring at this photo, and longing for that cappuccino in Florence.
While I was staying in Rome, I found out there were a lot of old books markets out there. I was so excited that I decided to go treasure hunting. I found a little market in the middle of nowhere, and managed to buy three old books for 5 euros. I wanted to buy more, trust me, but I had no place in my luggage (and I had even sacrificed a beautiful white umbrella I bought in Florence). Plus my godfather (or “Padrino” as I call him) had given me two books with all Borges writings. I am a huge fan of the Magic realism and the Lost generation, not because that’s what intellectuals read, but because I can relate so much to them.
I apologize for these low quality photos. Usually I work really hard on my blog multimedia, such as digital art, paintings, and photography. I have been very busy today, working on something really exciting, something I have been dreaming all my life. Truth to be told, I’m not feeling well today. My doctor said that I can’t use my left arm (I’m left handed) for a while, and typing with only one hand is really annoying. But hey… Nothing can stop the horrific Anila from doing what she wants.
So here are the books 🙂
The British Theater
“The Sun Also Rises” by Ernest Hemingway
I didn’t know where to put the books, but then I found out that this was a perfect opportunity to get rid of my mother’s romance books in my library. Muhahhaha!
As you can see for these two really old books I used a transparent material to protect them. These are “Fiesta” by Ernest Hemingway published 1971, and “La Divina Comedia” in 1941 (it was a present)
To stay inside the “antique” theme, I even put an old leaf I took in Rome last September. These books smell so nice, like flowers and vanilla…. It is like heaven. I can stay smelling them all day.
Have a great day!
Happy Scary Reading!
