Leather books

Physical books are starting to get a nostalgic, aesthetic-object status in my mind.
I have just bought a bunch of old, beautiful leather books to put in my nice cherry-wood book cases.
I'll have to be a little brutal to manage getting space for them, not sure how I'll mange. But I've wanted this for a long time.
Some of these books (by amazing coincidence they are mostly Danish) are even books I'd like to read. Like Classic early editions of HC Andersen.
(Though I'll probably still read them as ebooks, it's simply much better in almost every way.)

The beauty of such things were of course the inspiration for the background and header-background of this blog, which I most made myself. (Sorry, I'm just pretty proud of it.)
