I bought an old book on a street sale in France. Beautifully bound and really old with firm pages and mould stains inside what I really like, the brown ones and not dangerous. I have the idea to make an altered book. But goodness me, I started to read in it. It is Victor Hugo, a drama, Ruy Blas. I bet I will not be able to change its pages. I will have to hunt for another one, maybe in my own cupboard, this Victor Hugo is too precious for me.
