I love images from the past that show readers interacting with old books. They present a little piece of book history captured inside a piece of art, usually a photograph or a painting (I blogged about it here, if you are interested). This is the best I have seen in while. What’s so appealing is the size of the books and how tiny the librarian seems. She is so into the book that she does not even seem the notice us. Awesome!
