It's Vintage Thingie Thursday and the theme is "What was I thinking?"
Well, I was thinking of re-purposing these books for collage, maybe some artist trading cards. My inspiration for these has fled for the moment so these books are collecting dust. The Marjorie Dean book has few graphics in it. The American history book is deaccessioned from a college library. I felt bad about looking at the illustrations with such destructive plans, until I noticed that some book pages had not been cut - and the book clearly had NEVER BEEN OPENED OR READ. The old paper has not aged well and is brittle. Why did I spend $10 on this?
