This book is a wonderful example of this...er, little problem I have. Every now and then I want to mess about with decoupage, and old used books are a great resource for this. If the images in them are really lovely I'll keep the book and either photograph and print or xerox them. But every now and then I'll buy a used book that I'm sure I'll cut up because really, who would want to actually read that - and then I do, and then I can't bring myself to damage it. And that's where I come to this book.I already loved the cover design - but once I started reading it the book seemed such a perfect example/historical document of how (some) Americans in 1946 viewed the rest of the world. And the photos I'd thought to cut up seemed completely wasted if you didn't read their captions.Some photos, to give you an idea of what I'm talking about:Cover:http://www.flickr.com/photos/batgrl/9649354102/End page design:http://www.flickr.com/photos/batgrl/9649347416/Greece:http://www.flickr.com/photos/batgrl/9649341480/Estonia:http://www.flickr.com/photos/batgrl/9649335740/Antwerp, Belgium:http://www.flickr.com/photos/batgrl/9646096031/Sahara, "Transportation Old and New:"http://www.flickr.com/photos/batgrl/9649322262/So now this book has been added to my shelf of "old used books that are somewhat odd, probably not interesting to everyone, but that I'm keeping anyway."
