“NEW” Vintage Items

Go ahead, judge a book by it’s cover. We all do it.
I must admit that I have a weakness for books, and for older books with interesting covers or illustrations. The design work that has gone into the “Lily Series” seen here as Hope and Rest and The Doors Ajar are wonderful examples of their time. Now their subject matter may not always be to my taste, similar to Only A Lad, they are from a series of faith based novels, but their covers are still remarkable works of art with the added embossing and colouration.
All of the books and ultimately other ephemera and vintage photographs that are in the “Vintage” collection are for sale. The price will be in the comments when you select the image.
As shipping costs vary by book, please email me if you are interested in any of these. I bring a selection of vintage books, ephemera and photographs to my shows, the next being “In Other Words“, with information in an earlier blog post, or on the home page.

I hope to see you there.

On Reading
A celebration of the book in contemporary and vintage Photographs.
Contemporary images by Alexander Arts

During the month of December, thanks to the TPL exhibition program, the North York Central Library is hosting On Reading, a selection of vintage images and contemporary shots of people reading. The vintage pieces are all “found art”, photographs I have found in my travels at second hand stores, antique malls or junk stores. The contemporary images have been shot on street corners, parks, beaches and transit from our travels. There is a sampling of images under the “Exhibits” section of my website. I hope you can make it to the North York Central Library to see the entire installation of images, and a display of related items in a showcase on the second floor of the library – including banks, book ends, book plates and other related items.
