Baltimore Book Festival (Visited!)

I miss the festival already! While I wish it could’ve been held in Mt. Vernon rather than the Inner Harbor (where basically only chain stores and restaurants benefited from the extra foot traffic), it was still fantastic — crowded, energetic, colorful, and (of course) packed with books 🙂

And as I’ve always had a special love for the older and smellier of books…

unnamed (2) unnamed (4) unnamed     …I was certain to pick up a few! One odd book on book-keeping from 1843, a book of poems from 1898, Porphyrion and Other Poems by Laurence Binyon (digitized and available here), and another obscure book of poetry from 1905. 🙂
