    What a sweet book! Love the pages chosen.

    I have recently been able to bring myself to crumple up perfectly good paper, then ink the life out of it, aging it perfectly, tattered edges and all. I love the vintage lines that are coming out, and the old ticket stubs and post marks are my favorite.
