Picture of the Day 02.04.19: Beautiful Books

I was travelling for work today for a team away day and came across these lovely books in Wanstead Library: a selection of Penguin cloth bound classics.  Beautiful covers in bright colours are in fashion right now because people like to take artful pictures of stylish bookshelves (book shelfies).  

These were more than just display copies because they had been used and the cover art was starting to fade, which seemed better. Books are meant to be handled, read, digested, discussed and shared more than photographed (I probably shouldn’t mention the time I hit my sister with one, taking photo’s of books would still theoretically rank as better than hitting with books…)
