I bought these five beauties from a sidewalk bookseller and feel so happy to have them. Please add your treasures and discoveries! 📖📚💛
- •SPECIMEN DAYS, Walt Whitman"For the last half-hour a bird has persistently kept up a simple, sweet, melodious song, from the bushes. (I have a positive conviction that some of these birds sing, and others fly and flirt about here, for my especial benefit.)"
- •PARABLES AND PARADOXES, Franz Kafka"Leopards break into the temple and drink to the dregs what is in the sacrificial pitchers; this is repeated over and over again; finally it can be calculated in advance, and it becomes a part of the ceremony."
- •THE GREEK BUCOLIC POETS"I go a-courting of Amaryllis, and my goats they go browsing on along the hill . . . Beautiful Amaryllis, why peep you no more from your cave and call me in?"
- •THE HISTORY AND TECHNIQUE OF LETTERING, Alexander Nesbitt"The best way really to understand script is to write it. Beginners should try broad pens in various sizes and with varying skews."
- •THE ENDS OF THE EARTH, W.S. Merwin"The summer morning light through the big trees surrounds the dark branches with a radiance that is never entirely still."
