’tis the season

Happy Christmas, dear reader(s). I’m feeling festively empty-headed so will make this a pictorial post. Mum has given me a lovely 1937 edition of Lawrence of Arabia’s The Seven Pillars of Wisdom with pictures, which confirmed everything I suspected about pictures in books being a Good Thing. These photos of it open up very big if you click on them.

(‘the sword also means clean-ness + death’)

Careful observers will notice a stripey cat’s backside in the corner of some of these pics. He wasn’t to be moved. As well as pictures, I love a good map in books, and this gets bonus points for it being a fold-out map, and one designed so that you can consult it whilst turning the pages as it sticks out.

Fantastic illustrations. Thanks, Mum.
