I went into the used book shop Book Buyers in Mountain View and while I wasn't interested in expanding my to-read list I decided to look for items that I would normally not notice.
I got a book by John James Audubon who is a famous bird illustrator. And why do I need bird illustrations??? Well I don't, nobody does. But I thought the drawings were really beautiful and natural.
Then I also found some cool music sheets for single songs, which also feature some really cool and old illustrations as the cover page. Each music sheet was $1-$5 and the paper is old and wrinkly and smelly and awesome.
I think any of these are going to make some cool wall art, craft or stationary someday. I am such a fool for pretty paper goods.
