Curwen Press... have you ever heard of it?
Last week I spent a few days on a road trip with my dearly beloved. Because there are many miles involved, we change the view by stopping at an occasional antique store.
That's where I discovered Curwen Press.
In a stifling second-floor room of a small town antique store, I found this.
I flipped through it and loved the few pages I saw.
It wasn't until I got home that I saw this...
... and decided that before I started cannibalizing the book for art to frame, I should do a little research.
Surprise! Curwen Press has a fascinating history, and I hold a rare piece of that history in my hands. Not to worry... I've changed my plans for cutting it up.
Don't let anyone ever tell you that shopping is a waste of time. I find it to be very enlightening!
... for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart. I Samuel 16:7
