“This 16th Century Book Can Be Read Six Different Ways”

I don’t see a WordPress shareable link, so I’ll post an excerpt from Colossal:

“…Printed in the late 16th century this small book from the National Library of Sweden is an example of sixfold dos-à-dos binding, where six books are conjoined into a single publication but can be read individually with the help of six perfectly placed clasps. This particular book was printed in Germany and like almost all books at the time is a religious devotional text.”

Special thanks to Erik Kwakkel for the original story.

THANK YOU To The Customer Who Bought My “Antique Typewriter” Post Card

THANKS for buying this post card!

I LOVE old typewriters and would love to own one someday…nope, not a hipster, just love writing/typing. AND, I’m actually old enough to have taken typing class using one of these old “snap snap snap” machines!!!!!
