I love old books. I like to read them, to look at them, to decorate with them, and to use them for the perfect present (the ultimate form of recycling). I have been arranging my book shelves by color for quite a while and after helping friends and clients do the same, and seeing the growing trend, I decided to sell decorative book collections, thus DecadesofVintage. For me, decorating with books is like painting a picture or telling a story.
Why we love this
Set of 19 volumes from the early blue collection The Harvard Classics. In 1909 Dr. Eliot, President of Harvard University, made claims that one could get a quality education by reading from a five-foot shelf of classics for 15 minutes a day. Collier & Son challenged Dr. Eliot to create such a collection. New York: Collier & Son, 1910. Minor cover wear.
