Bundling and selling books by color is practice that I, a true lover of books and reading found abhorrent. Until it served my self-interest to change my mind.
You see, in a moment of weakness, well-known to those who frequent auctions, I bought 150 or so vintage books with a few antiques thrown in. (I consider vintage to be roughly 1914-1970, and antique pre-World War I.)
I bought them to sell in the Etsy store, but most, on their own are not worth the time it takes to photograph and list them. So I turned to bundling. I tried to group them by subject, but ended up having to put some together by color, and you know what? It was kind of fun. They will add warmth and charm and character to a room, and even if someone just buys them for their looks, there's always a chance they will one day be opened and read. These days books need love, and I will do what I can to help them find it.
This bunch is all vintage math books.
These I grouped by their wonderful vintage covers featuring sultry women.
Isn't she a beauty? The name of the novel is The Turquoise. So mysterious.
Here's another group I put together because of their dust jackets.
So, despite my falling standards, I hope you'll still be my friend. These are desperate times for books and those who find them irresistible.
