A beautiful old book :) :) {mt. pleasant, tx engagement and portrait photographer}


I've bloggged in the past about my love for hardcover books (if you've never read that post, please go read it because it's one of my favorites :D ). Well, this post is about one hardcover book that was recently given to me :D.

Monday morning our friends the Longs (who spent the weekend with us) headed back home. But before they left, they gave us some unexpected parting gifts: Mom a cute apron, Dad a few books, and me a necklace from Savannah and then, from Bro. Steve, this beautiful old copy of William Cowper's poems!!! 


The only poems I've read of his are ones that we sing in our hymn book :). So, I'm really looking forward to reading the rest :D.


And it's also beautifully illustrated!! I loooove this kind of old artwork :D.



I also love the old typeface :). It's just awesome :).




And of course the cover is a work of art.


Hooray for beautiful things and for the people that were gifted by God with the creativity to make them so we might appreciate and enjoy them :D.


With a smile,
