Paper Stacks

Seth Apter has come up with another project for bloggers to see-Paper Stacks.
It goes live on wed. He will link up all the participants (70+) for you to peruse.  This image is a stack of journals-including the "big ass pink and black" one on the bottom (and yes, that is the name i gave it when i made it for artfest one year)
 





 I decided to add more pictures to this post after seeing the first 20 participants.  Originally didn't want to "clog up" this post since we have lots to go look at-but i like seeing all the other photo's that others have posted that I decided "why not?"  So you can look at some of my book collections-I keep saying I don't need anymore-but then I see one I can't resist :)  Thanks for stopping by-i try to answer all comments, but in case I don't-do know that i read and appreciate them all!

That thirst for old books is never satisfied - a statement I think many of us exploring these blog entries certainly can identify with! Thanks for adding more photos! I swear I have almost identical snap shots - you are such a comfort to me as I occasionally look around thinking - what am I doing? LOL Now I know, I'm just doing what she's doing!!! Have a great week as your attention shifts to seeing things in 'layers'!!
