Another Book

For today's lunch, I decided to walk over to investigate the university library's Annual Book Sale.
I'm pretty excited; I scored this, in great shape with an intact dustjacket, for $3:
Gotta love librarians*, though. They are repositories of all sorts of esoteric knowledge, but when I went to check out, one asked me, "So is this one of the Baldwin brothers?" Sigh.
*I say fondly, as a member of the profession!

Could you imagine Billy Balwin arranging the sofa's while fighting with Kim? LOL

WOW!! What a score! His work has inspired many!
I can't believe a librarian said that to you!

Yes: academic librarians are interested in many things but fashion and design tend not to be among them. ;-)
I wonder if Sarah Palin would like THIS Baldwin brother? :-)

Unbeknownst to us, Alec and Billy are partners in an interiors firm on the side ;)

Great find though! Gotta love secondhand book sales...Have a super happy Halloween!

Oh! And I'm glad your son liked the ginger cookies...they held up well when I made them too, so I'm happy to hear that they worked out as a good recipe to mail. And what a good mama you are for sending him yummies :)

Hello, fellow book lover!

I did visit your book shelf, finally. Much finer aesthetics than mine!

My non-designer friend thought it was written by a Baldwin Brother too! So funny! I'm still a little miffed that you got yours for only $3! I think I paid at least $60! I'm going to have to give you a list of my wish list books and see what else you can find ;-)
