Oh Pangaea Books!

One of the reasons that I love vintage imagery is the early printing processes that they used in the past. A lot of vintage imagery that we have access to is engraved - steel engravings, copper engraving etc. And I like nothing better than to inspect beautiful old printing with a magnifying glass or loupe. That's why I was so drawn to this gorgeous book from Oh Pangaea Books - hand bound books. The bird on this book looks a lot like it is from a book of natural history perhaps in the 1870s - and I love how huge it is.
